On clean W2K8 R2 Install, clean SQL Standard SP1, I get the following error on the TFS readiness validation:
[ Reporting ] TFxxxxxx: SQL Server Reporting Services is configured to require a secure connection, however no HTTPS URL is configured with a valid certificate. Use the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to configure or remove HTTPS support.
However, I don't see any checkbox in "Reporting Services Configuration Manager" to turn off HTTPS. Any way to supress this? Configuration wizard won't let me continue without fixing this issue.
