Initializes the specified report service instance.
When this method is called, the encryption key that accesses the report server database secure information is encrypted using the public key of the report server identified by InstallationID.
The specified report server’s public key must have previously been written into the report server database.
The InitializeReportServer method must be called against a report server that already has access to the secure information so that it can decrypt the encryption key. The resulting encrypted encryption key is then stored in the report server database.
If the report server’s IsInitialized property is set to true when the InitializeReportServer method is called, the method returns success without trying to encrypt the encryption key.
