Can't save report to Power BI Server: Server is not reachable

Hi Community,


I can’t save my report to Power BI Report Server.

I downloaded the latest Power BI Report Developer Edition. I created a simple table report in Power BI Desktop. When I want to save to the server report, it gives me the error: Server is not reachable.

Please see the screen shot.Capture.JPG

This is because you are using the webservice url (/ReportServer) where as you should be using the Portal url (/Reports) as it says in the example text above the server address.


So you should find that using http://SLB-6KWM6Y2/Reports will work.
