    Installing reporting services

    Hello everyone,

    I have been trying to install Reporting services but with out success.

    At the end of setup I get a message something like this ....unable to connect to the report server please configure manually.

    at the command prompt an error message which says ...unable to connect to the database, is being displayed

    can anyone advise me on this, please.

    we have SQL server 2000,.net2003 installed on windows 2003 platform.

    Thank you.

    Have you applied sp3a to your sql server?

    Can you connect to the sql server from any machine?

    Is the account you used to install reporting service a valid sql user?

    The account is that of an administrator and I have applied sp3a plus we are being able to connect to the sql server from other machines.
    I created a local account too and tried activating it by using rsactivate utility but that that did not work either. Any suggestions.
