Error when configuring HEAT Reporting Services: The Url has already been reserved.

Version 1

    Details

    While configuring the HEAT reporting services in the System Configuration Wizard (SCW) an error message is displayed that prevents the finishing of the configuration.

     


    Resolution

     

    The existing url/port reservations need to be removed so that the new url/port reservations can be applied by the System Configuration Wizard (SCW).


    The 2 commands to use are:

     

    netsh http show urlacl

     

    netsh http delete urlacl http://+:80/Reports/

    netsh http delete urlacl http://+:80/ReportServer/


    The delete command(s) may need to be changed so that "Reports" and "ReportServer" part of the URL matches the name of the currently reserved URLs that is returned by the show command.
