When I try to connect to my reporting services server (SQL Server 2005) from my local machine, SQL Server 2014 I get the error message below

Invalid Namespace (System.Management)

enter image description here

But when I RDP into my reporting services server and connect to reporting services there, everything is fine.

There is nothing wrong with the reporting services.

Is there a way to connect to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services from a SSMS 2014?


I have the same problem except my Reporting Service is 2008 R2.

Anyway I have SSMS 2014 on the server where Reporting Service is installed and get the same error.

I have installed SSMS 2008 R2 and straight away it works.

So you must have same version SSMS as Reporting service.

And here is explanation:

In Reporting Services, the namespace for SSRS 2014 is root\Microsoft\SqlServer\ReportServer\RS_\v12\Admin while the namespace for SSRS 2012 is root\Microsoft\SqlServer\ReportServer\RS_\v11\Admin.
