Unable to connect to Report Server in SSMS – Unable to connect to the server at . The specified URL might not be valid or there might be a problem with the report server version or configuration

Problem: Unable to connect to report server using management studio.

“Unable to connect to the server at . The specified URL might not be valid or there might be a problem with the report server version or configuration.”

Solution:

I was able to connect using a url rather than the server name in the server name box.
The url should be same url used to connect to the reportserver page (not reports page)
eg http://cat-tin-aardvark01/ReportServer_AARDVARK01_SSRS
where cat-tin-aardvar01 was the name of the server and AARDVARK01_SSRS was the name of the reporting server instance.
