I have an instance of SQL Server 2012 running on Windows 2008R2 along side another instance of SQL Server 2012 that is running SharePoint (I think it is SharePoint 2010).

When I try to access the http://localhost/Reports_<InstanceName> I am getting:

  1. A certificate warning (which I proceed through - I don't really care about this - its a dev machine)
  2. The following text: Cannot connect to the configuration database.

Google says that that error message is SharePoint related so I am inclined to think that SharePoint is highjacking the SSRS request.

Is there a configuration I can make to SSRS or something else (IIS maybe??) that will let me access the Report Server?

Note: I can connect to Reporting Services through SSMS just fine.
