  • Not able to run reports with https

    In my sql configuration manager, there was 2 urls specified in the web service url tab

    One with Http and the other with https

    I am able to view my report with http but not with https

    What should i do for this?

     I placed the below line in my web.config

    <Add Key=”SecureConnectionLevel” Value=”3″/>

    remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure

  • HI Eileen

    Thanks for the reply, i have gone thru the link previously. I was not able to create a server certiificate

    There is even a sub link in the link you have shared, which tells about obtaining the server certificate locally. I was not about to create the server certificate with MakeCert

    Do you know any other link where they have explained about creating a server certificate?
