Reinstallation doesn't work. We've tried it, multiple members of my team, at least 6 times total, including reboots between uninstall and install.
The picture error is as follows:
*Report Server Configuration Exception
Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.WMIProviderException: An error occurred when attempting to connect to the report server remote procedure call (RPC) end point. Verify that the Report Server Windows service is running, and then retry the operation. -->
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMExecption: The RPC server is not listening. (Exception from HRESULT: 0X800706B3)

Regarding the encryption key bit, I know how to do that but for some reason we're unable to back up the encryption keys on our old servers via Config Manager or via other methods (powershell, command line). Since we can't get the encryption keys for the old databases, my next thought was to try creating a new SSRS database to start from scratch. That's where I'm getting the above error. I can't even create a blank / new database.
Any other thoughts?
