SSRS: The report server cannot open a connection to the report server database

Hello:

I'm running SQL Server 2008 R2.  I changed my password.  But, I stopped and restarted the services in Administrative Tools and in SSRS Configuraiton Manager.  Services are running normally.

But, when I try to go to my Report Manager URL, I get the following message in the web page:

The report server cannot open a connection to the report server database.  A connection to the database is required for all requests and processing. (rsReportServerDatabaseUnavailable)

Also, when I try to go into Reporting Services in SQL Management Studio, I get messages saying that the URL is not valid.

How do I eliminate these errors so that I can get back into Report Manager and get back into my reports?

Thanks!

Below are your questions and their answers:

Is that on the same computer(server) where you changed your password?  Yes.

And were the SQL Server and SSRS installed on your local computer and they are not working after you changed your AD NT login password?  Yes.


Can you access SSMS and connect to that SQL Server - Reporting Services?  No.

Update:  I fixed this by changing the service to Local Service rather than to my domain account.  And, in Configuration Manager, I found that I did not go far enough inn the wizard that is used to change credentials (i.e. conduct password changes).

Once I did those things, SSRS was back up and running!

It is interesting, though, that SSRS lets me use Local System to drive the SSRS service account but an AD account to connect to the databases.  

For my future reference, do you know why that is?

Hi lcohan!

I was referring to changing my password in Windows Active Directory, in my domain.

Please let me know, if you have any other questions.
