SSRS Konfiguration Manager | Error while creating report server db

While installing and configuring an additional SSRS instance on a SQL Server 2012 SP2 CU6 I ran into an error message that confused me.

German Message:
Die Funktion Verwenden anderer SQL Server-Editionen als Berichtsquellen und/oder für die Berichtsserver-Datenbank wird in dieser Edition von Reporting Services nicht unterstützt.

After some back and force I recognized that I had used a different edition for the SSRS instance. The SQL Server was a Developer edition and the SSRS instance was an enterprise edition. This combination did not work for me. So always take the same edition ;)
