The Report Server Installation Is Not Initialized (rsReportServer Not Activated)

This is one of the common error you may get when you rebuild or restore or upgrade your reporting server database and browse the report service manager URL. You may get the similar error when you browse the .rdl report also which was working earlier when your server was running fine.

To resolve this error you may follow one of the below steps,

Option 1:

  • Open Reporting Services Configuration Manager
  • Go to Encryption Keys
  • Delete Encrypted Content
  • Click on Delete

Option 2:

  • Go to Reporting Services Configuration Manager.
  • Go to "Encryption Keys" to backup the key.
  • Navigate to "Database" tab.
  • Click "Change Credentials" to reset the connections.

Now you will be able to browse the report without any issue.

Is there a permanent fix to that ?
Like a procedure or something that gets triggered when error like this occurs ?
