SSRS 2008- Underlying connection was closed – could not establish trust relationship for SSL/TLS…
In my previous blog, I wrote about SSRS 2005 “unable to connect to remote server” issue and the fix for it. You can find it here;
So here is the next issue with SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services. “The underlying connection was closed: could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.”
This error popped up after a fresh, successful installation, when I tried to access the report manager at http://localhost/Reports_SQL2K8
Well, this one was not so difficult to figure out. Since the error clearly said that it has something to do with SSL. I fired up Reporting Services Configuration Manager. And clicked on “Report Manager URL” section, and this is what I saw:
If you observe, https:// has been configured. But I did not do it. May be, the default configuration. I clicked on Advanced. See the screenshot below:
If you observe, default SSL certificate for both IPv4 & IPv6 was configured which was causing the problem. This default configuration was done by SSRS 2008 installation. I suspect, this was due to Windows Server 2008 R2 network services or any other role/feature I enabled before SSRS installation. Now, I did not need SSL configuration on my personal laptop and/or this configuration had to be fixed. I removed both the configurations and clicked OK. But it still not done. The same configuration has to be removed from “Web Service URL” section in SSRS configuration – exactly in the same way.
That’s it. You are done. The Report Manager was now showing up, successfully.

Now that was informative, i was not aware that SSRS 2008 by default enables SSL.
Thanks for adding this to my knowledge.
Yes Sarab, even i was surprised on this one, though i went ahead will al default options.
Help! I did the above but still the same error.

My sql server version is 2008. And problem occured after network Admin department instal the Visual studio 2012 and Kaspersky internet security in my system. I tried a lot to solve this pblm, still same problem occur again and again, even after un instal VS2012
Kindly help in this problem
I’m seeing the above error “The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.” in SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services.
When I remove the SSL Identities from both the Web Service URL and the Report Manager URL, I get another error:
Unable to connect to the remote server
I’ve tried to allow the programs through the Windows Firewall, but it was already allowed.
Sir, its good article. we have to remove ssl certificate bindings fro ssrs configuration manager
