I have created the reports by using SSRS 2016 and Visual Studio 2015. When I build the reports it shows success, then deploying the report to the Target server URL I get the following error:

Microsoft SQL Server Report Designer:

Could not connect to the report server http://ServerName/ReportServer_InstanceName. Verify that the TargetServerURL is valid and that you have the correct permissions to connect to the report server.

Additional Info: Unable to connect to the Remote server

I got the report sever URL from the configured Reporting Services:

It's a named instance so I added WEB Server URL as: http://servername/reportserver_instancename and I checked permission all are in place.

Is there any reason behind the URL or Permissions issue?

  • Are you running VS as Administrator? May 23, 2017 at 16:40
  • @HenricoBekker, No. I am running VS as a user and I have all permissions for that.

  • Right-click on Visual Studio executable, select Run as Administrator. May 23, 2017 at 16:43
  • @HenricoBekker, Yeah I did it, again it shows same error like before

    Confirm the report server url is correct in the project deployment properties too. May 23, 2017 at 21:34
