SSRS 2012 Service Application in Sharepoint 2013 returns internal Server Error (500)

So you are installing SQL Reporting Services in a 2 or more server farm. And when you go to the service to manage it you’re getting the following error

Application error when access /_admin/ReportServer/ReportingServicesSystemSettings.aspx, Error=The remote server returned an error

If you’re getting this error after you installed the SQL Reporting Services Add-in for SP2013 that means you haven’t installed Reporting Services on a SharePoint 2013 server. You can either install SharePoint on your Reporting Services installed server or  install Reporting Services to one of your SharePoint App servers.

Install SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services on a SharePoint application server. In the SQL Server 2012 installation wizard, choose ‘Reporting Services – SharePoint’ on the feature selection page.

    I think that Installing entire SharePoint 2013 sever is more preferable option for any SharePoint development work. Because it gives provide you total support.
