Same problem for me, and same solution. MS dropped the ball on this one. A simple heads up would have saved me 3 hours yesterday.
Made this change on my report server and now i get 503 error, service unavailablem and can´t connect via ssms to the reporting server instance to correct. Any help is appreciated, as i´m looking at rebuilding the server...
The ssrs service restarts after changing the property. Is your service up and running?
It was. I tried restarting the services, restarting the server, repairing the Report Server installation, checking .config files, what have you. Lost connection to the report server database entirely. Ended up having to create a new report server database, reload all reports, rebuild folder structure, reconfigure security and automatic refresh rules.
So yeah, a fun morning...
Microsoft just released an update that may fix this issue along with a few others
