just thought I would share, I was unable to install correctly Veeam Reporter and managed to find a solution.
- the first setup cycle told me SSRS couldn't be successfully installed
- but after the setup finished (with a failed status), I could see that SSRS was up and running
- subsequent tries got me an "Selected SSRS instance has invalid configuration..." error
Resolution : uncheck all proxy-related parameters in IE, whatever your proxy setup is. In my case I didn't have any proxy on the LAN but "Automatically detect settings" was checked and that was causing the error.
In ReportSetup.log, before applying this I could see that it could'nt open the WebService URL, although I could with IE.
Seems that the method used by the setup to open the URL is buggy under certain circumstances...
Error message in ReportSetup.log :
- Code: Select all

The request failed with the error message:
