This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello all,

I'm trying to deply DA-reports, using the EVBAadmin-webpage, Reportingserver option.

This DA server is in a domain called, the sql-server is in The sql server is pingable, both on ip, name and alias from a to b. When clicking button 'Reporting Server', I am filling in the Reporting Server URL as As username and password, I am using the username/password of the account created in as being the reporting user account. When clicking the 'upload reports' button, I get an 404 - Not Found. When using machinename, ip-adres, same error.

Can I upload the reports manually? What else can be done to get the DA-reports installed properly?

Thanks, Gertjan

Try reinstalling the reports. It looks like it did not setup the web link correctly

Keep your chin up one way or another with all the help on connect a solution will be found. If all else fails we can get Kevin Graves or Sammy Campavannarath from the DA back line support teams on the case as as they are the DA guru's

DA server is in domain, SQL reporting server is in domain (ie same domain). DA-server is W2003STD, Reporting is W2008R2/SQL2008R2.

Reporting pre-reqs have been met (Systemmanager and Contentmanager role for VSA from EVSite1 ) and can open it. I can ping, nslookup, and open the reportsite from the da-server. When trying to upload the DA-reports to the reporting server, I fill in, VSA and password. I almost immediately get an HTTP 404, page does not exist

I tried using different servernames (http://servername/reports, http://servername, servername/reports), VSA as domain\vsa and vsa and all to no avail.

The below event in eventlog indicates the website is not available. How do I get the reports installed. Anyone? Please?

I now have the following event to accompany my error:

can you get a dtrace of w3wp on the SSRS server for us and post here?

I'll get the dtrace from the SSRS whilst trying to upload the reports.

just as a matter of interest if you try does that make any difference?

One thing i've seen a lot online has been having multiple sites on the report server being set to use All Unassigned ip addresses as opposed to a dedicated IP Address, and someone else suggested it was because they had https only set up and they were specifying http instead

Thanks JW.

I've tried again several entries, and than as last I entered:

entered vsa + password, upload succesfull.

Strange that I access the site using, but ok.

The reports are available!

hey gertjan, good job!

and yeah the /reports and /reportServer have slightly different functions,

/reports is the full pretty GUI'd back end but (from a webdev point of view) slightly less functional than the /reportserver itself, as you can see which reports are deployed in a nice xml output and what not as well as being able to hook in to the other aspx stuff easier

if you actually browse to the /reportserver/ you can see its an ugly no frills representation of the main /reports site

But regardless, glad you got it sorted :)

is there a DA reports configuration util like there is for the EV reports? i deployed the DA reports but they're just templates?

Hi Andrew,

Make a new post. This posy has been closed with a solution....

I guess it is templates because they are case-dependent (or user dependent) you have to enable report in the role within DA. Use the client to generate the reports. I'll see what I can get next week. In the meantime, create a new post, so your question does get an answer
