SSRS:  The report server installation is not initialized

Hello:

I'm trying to migrate SQL Reporting Services from one SQL 2008 R2 server to another.  I have restored the ReportServer and ReportServerTemp databases and have accessed the Reporting Services Configuration Manager on the new server.

But, when trying to open the Report Manager's web site, I get a message saying "The report server installation is not initialized".  I have activated SQL Reporting Services in Reporting Services Configuration Manager and the reports services service is started.

Now, I have not restored the backup of the encryption key, yet.  The old server has been backing that piece up for several minutes now, and I did not realize it would take so long.  Since IT has left for the day and I therefore no longer have remote access, I will have to wait on restoring the encryption key tomorrow.

Barring the lack of the encryption key, though, is there anything else that can be checked in order to get past this Report Manager web site error?

Thanks!

I've seen this before, but I'm not at a place where I can check my references.  Have you seen this?
