Report Server has only ApShell

Hi everyone.

I installed SAP BPC MS 7.5 normally (windows server 2008 R2), no error occurred.

I created new appsets with no problems apparently.

But when I tested the SQL Server Reporting Services it is only showing the AppSet: ApShell.

I created new appsets but none of them appear when I open the page of the reporting service, only the ApShell.

Another problem is that, when I try to modify any application from a new applictation set this error is occouring:

Cannot connect to the Reporting Server

There is something wrong with the connection with BPC and the Reporting Server.

I checked the names/configurations (Report Server Virtual Directory) in both sides they are the same.

Hope anyone can help.

Thanks a lot.

    Hi Gisele

    The user account in which BPC is running under, does it have 'Content Administrator' permissions in Reporting Services?

    When modifying the application and you get the error can not connect to reporting server, could either be that the user in which BPC is running doesnt have permission to access the report server, or the value defined in Server manager is incorrect, perhaps an incorrect server name, etc

    Quick test, from the BPC application server connect to the report sever URL http://<ReportServer>/Reports using the account in which BPC is installed and running under. It must have acces to connect to the report server url without it prompting for any authentication. (no username and password dialog box)

    If you are not able to see the reports for the other application sets, you will need to manually publish the reports, this will recreate the reports in the report server. BPC Web Admin -> Publish Reports -> Publish the reports

    Kind Regards
