Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2015 Reporting setup

Hi Experts,

I have set up an entirely new virtual Win Server 2012, installed SQL Server 2014, and then installed Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2015 (TFS)

All installations went perfectly, database instance is all good, however when I come to CONFIGURE the TFS full server using the wizard, I go through each step accepting all defaults, and also tick the checkbox to configure 'reporting' (I do have a reporting service set up in SQL)

But when I get to the end of the wizard, and have to verify all settings, the only thing that fails, is an authentication issue.. see the attachment for the exact error

I think this is a general 'reporting' configuration step I am missing.. I am logged in as THE domain administrator.. I even added SYSTEM and SERVICE accounts into the local administrator group on the server, as well as myself

My Reports Manager URL ... looking in the 'Reporting Services Configuration Manager' is http://tp-thing-01/Reports_JAMBO_DEV/

This works, when I browse to this, i do get the Reports Manager web interface. Am I in the correct place?

I had to point the reporting service to a remote SQL instance which is running on SQL 2008 full with reporting services AND Analysis service installed.
