Connect to local DB SQL Server 2016 Developer Edition from Report Server Configuration Manager

On Local machine AAA:

(1) Install MS SQL Server 2016 Developer (13.0.4206.0, SP1, Developer Edition (64-bit))

(2) Install Power BI Report Server (license version)

(3) Upgrade Power BI Report Server to Power BI Report Server August 2017 public preview.

(4) Start Report Server Configuration Manager -> I'm try config Database on second step get message (Test connection successful):

"The Database engine instance you selected is not valid for this edition of report server...."

On the other machine BBB, I'm do all step from (1) to (4) successful.

But on machine BBB MS SQL Server 2016 is Enterprise Edition (13.0.4206.0, SP1, Enterprise Edition: Core-based Licensing (64-bit)), as result PBIRS work fine with local DB on machine BBB.

 

I'm try connect to DB from machine AAA to BBB -> work fine.

 

As a result, PBIRS not work with MS SQL Server 2016 DEVELOPER Edition?

@mgmeyer @Jon-HeideCan you share the detail list of database engine editions that are supported to host Power BI report server August preview?

Hello @koinovi,

 

I am running my development server exactly with this configuration and it is running fine.

I'm deleted on machine AAA PBIRS and SQL Server an install again.

Result - not work. 

Any ideas?

Maybe this error writes in LOG file, with more detail?
