I have a SQL 2008 RS machine that won't start RS. I get the following message when trying to start the services through RS Configuration Manager:
System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot start service ReportServer on computer 'KRONOS-BI-P1'. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---
at System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController.Start(String args)
at ReportServicesConfigUI.Panels.ServerInformationPanel.StartStopServiceTask(Boolean start)
The server had RS 2005 on it, and that was uninstalled and RS 2008 was installed.
I have added a ServicesPipeTimeout registry setting of 60000, rebooted the machine, and the same reason occurred.
The Application Event Log shows this:
Windows saved user WPSIC\Reporting-Corp registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.
This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.
The System Event Log shows this:
The SQL Server Reporting Services (MSSQLSERVER) service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
My understanding from the person that installed did the installation work is that the Encryption Key step was not done.
The SQL Server that it is connecting to was not touched and is a SQL 2005 SP4 machine. Both machines are Windows 2003 OS
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
