Why is the Initialization checkmark sometimes grayed out in Reporting Services 2005 Configuration Manager?

Just a quick post for Reporting Services.

If you are using the Standard edition of Reporting Services, the initialization pane is grayed out in Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

You should still see the checkmark. This is grayed out because scale out to a web farm is not available in this edition. If the Report Server Windows service is running, it is already initialized.
