I have installed SSRS 2008 R2 on my desktop and server. When I hit the reports link on my desktop


all I get to see is this home page of the desktop ssrs instance

I cant create a new folder or data source or anything of the sort

On the server where I am attempting to set up SSRS 2008 R2, all I get is a white screen that shows the virtual folder name in large fonts, followed by the version of the reporting services server on the next line. This is not leaving me any clues as to what needs to be fixed. On both pcs I am using the credentials of the local admin. Any clues on what needs to be fixed?

Are you being asked for a user name/password when you get to that page? It could be a permissions issu. – StanleyJohns May 10 '13 at 18:58
Try opening IE as Administrator and then navigate to the URL. – Rikalous May 10 '13 at 21:26
I entered the admin username and password but only got that screen – user20358 May 11 '13 at 2:59
