SSRS Web Site vs Web Service

Had an issue yesterday where installing Microsoft CRM couldn't find the reporting server.

The error was a 404, essentially, the CRM install couldn't see the Reporting server.

The issue was that we had copy-pasted the Reporting Services web site

http://domain.com/Reports

instead of the Reporting Services web service

http://domain.com/ReportServer


Duh.


In conclusion: don't do that.
