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):

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?
