What should I do if I got "Report Server is not accessible" HTTP Status 404 error when I try to deploy Reporting Services Reports?

The error “Report Server is not accessible” and the error code 404 means you don’t have a Report Server located in the address you specified or you don’t have enough permission to access this server.

Please double check

  • Where is your Reporting Service deployment, if you have a SQL2000/2005 server and its name is DatabaseServer, then your reporting service url is normally:
    http://DatabaseServer/Reports for Report Manager
    http://DatabsaeServer/ReportServer for Report Server web services
    Note: On SQL Server 2000, Reporting Services is not a built-in feature, you will need separate installation package to deploy reporting services; for SQL Server 2005, the default installation should have Reporting Services deployed to the database server machine.
  • Make sure you have enough permission to access your Reporting Services, RS uses Integrated Security which means if you have Active Directory, you should assign a particular user group to access this server, by default installation, RS only allows the local Administrators group to access it.
