Dynamics CRM 2011 Installation: Setup failed to validate specified Reporting Services Report Server

If you saw my last Dynamics CRM 2011 Installation: "The instance name must be the same as computer name." I am learning the valuable lesson of when you replicate a VM sys-prep image be sure to change the computer name before anything is installed.

After I renamed the instance to the correct name I was then greeted with the following:

To fix this you will need to do the following:

  • if you have not done so already you may need to rename the instance.. see link above for steps
  • Next start the Reporting Services Configuration Manager
  • Click on Database then the Change Database button

  • Select Choose an existing report server database
  • Click Next

  • Correct the server name and test connection for good measure.
  • Click Next

  • Select the reporting server database
  • Click Next

  • From here it is Next, Next, Finished
  • Restart the Database Server again for good measure and back to the Dynamic CRM installation.
