On a ssrs 2012 reporting server, I want to install load uploaded rdls to a test report server. The rdls load correctly, however the 'manage' dropdown list is not working. I need these rdls to connect the specific datasources. To solve my problem of needing to be able to connect the rdls to the appropirate datasopurces, I have the following questions:
1. Can you tell me what I can do to get 'manage' dropdown list is work? If this option does not work, do you have other options on how I can get this 'manage' option to work?
2. Is there another way I can connect the rdls to the correct datasources? If so, what are they? Should I just have the datasource setup correctly in the rdl so this change does not need to occur on the report server?

If you are not already doing the following, try these:
1. Makes sure you are logged on to Windows on the test report server.
2. Launch Internet Explorer with "Run as Administrator"
3. Connect to http://localhost/Reports
