SSRS: Install-AXReportInstanceExtensions MetadataServiceException

When you get the MetadataServiceException:

Install-AXReportInstanceExtensions -ReportServerInstanceName TWI -Credential TWI\axbcproxy

Install-AXReportInstanceExtensions : Für den Metadatendienst ist auf dem Client oder dem Server eine Ausnahme aufgetreten. Ausnahmedetails: Unable to log on to Microsoft Dynamics AX. 
In Zeile:1 Zeichen:1 + Install-AXReportInstanceExtensions -ReportServerInstanceName TWI -Credential TWI\axbcproxy ... 
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], MetadataServiceException 
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Services.Client.MetadataServiceException 

while installing the AX ReportInstanceExtensions via AX Management Shell you should check the AX client configuration.
In the eventviewer is a warning that tells us to check the WCF configuration. So after changing the client configuration to an AX AOS that is available and accessible by the current user this message should disapper. Keep in mind to update WCF configuration after changing AOS Server and/or port.

SSRS: The report server installation is not initialized

On an azure environment I just got the error:

The report server installation is not initialized. (rsReportServerNotActivated) 

when opning the SSRS ReportServer site.

This can be fixed by creating a new Reporting Services database through the Reporting Services Configuration Manager - Change Database

It has to do with false entries in the ReportServer Database in table Keys that does not match the installation.

Stop and start SSRS service afterwards and everything is fine again.
