EV Reports Web site is not responding

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am on EV 9 and SQL server 2005 on Windows 2003 32 bit

When trying to access http://<sqlsvr>/Reports via Internet Explorer the browser hangs for a length of time and then I get the following error.

Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=utf-8', but expected 'text/xml'. The request failed with the error message: -- <html> <head> <title> SQL Server Reporting Services </title><meta name="Generator" content="Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services 9.00.5000.00" /> <meta name="HTTP Status" content="500" /> <meta name="ProductLocaleID" content="9" /> <meta name="CountryLocaleID" content="2057" /> <meta name="StackTrace" content /> <style> BODY {FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-WEIGHT:normal; FONT-SIZE: 8pt; COLOR:black} H1 {FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-WEIGHT:700; FONT-SIZE:15pt} LI {FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-WEIGHT:normal; FONT-SIZE:8pt; DISPLAY:inline} .ProductInfo {FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-WEIGHT:bold; FONT-SIZE: 8pt; COLOR:gray} A:link {FONT-SIZE: 8pt; FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; COLOR:#3366CC; TEXT-DECORATION:none} A:hover {FONT-SIZE: 8pt; FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; COLOR:#FF3300; TEXT-DECORATION:underline} A:visited {FONT-SIZE: 8pt; FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; COLOR:#3366CC; TEXT-DECORATION:none} A:visited:hover {FONT-SIZE: 8pt; FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; color:#FF3300; TEXT-DECORATION:underline} </style> </head><body bgcolor="white"> <h1> Reporting Services Error<hr width="100%" size="1" color="silver" /> </h1><ul> <li>An internal error occurred on the report server. See the error log for more details.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated.

What happens if you try http://mvfsvrsql/reportserver instead or http://mvfsvrsql/reports.

See http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/101a7fe1-0b14-4dbe-a142-3f21caece1d1/client-found-response-content-type-of-texthtml-charsetutf8-but-expected-textxml?forum=sqlreportingservices

You might need to take a look at your SQL Reporting installation to make sure it has been configured correctly.

Hi Ravi,

This is a generic error message that is often followed by a more descriptive error that provides more detail.

To determine the specific cause for this message, review the report server log files, which are located at \Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS.<instancename >\Reporting Services\LogFiles.

Also check the Application log on the Server where we have installed Sql reporting service.
