SQL Reporting Services Install issue in SharePoint Integrated mode

When trying to set the Web Service Identity within the Reporting Services Configuration Manager in a SharePoint integrated mode , we encountered the following issue

ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.WMIProviderException: An unknown error has occurred in the WMI Provider. Error Code 80070003
   at ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.RSReportServerAdmin.SetWebServiceIdentity(String applicationPool)

At first we thought the WMI provider was corrupted and tried to go that route for resolving this issue. After quite some time we figured that it may have been something with the applicationPool and hence started looking at the Web site configuration within IIS. Sure enough, in the ASP.NET tab for the web site, there was no entry for the ASP.NET version. After setting the value to 2.0 , we re-ran the configuration and the issue was fixed.


Check to make sure the right ASP.NET version is selected on your Reporting services website.  While you are there ensure that the ASP.NET web service extension is set to Allowed.  If these dont fix your issue running the aspnet_regiis -i might help as well ( I havent tried this!)
