Adding second instance of SSRS reporting features disabled

    Question

  • I am running SQL Server 2008 R2 server on windows 2008 server.

    On the MSSQLServer instance, I already have Reporting services configured in Native mode.

    I am trying to add another instance of SSRS in integrated mode. I have followed the steps shown below. The account used has administrator privilages on the server and the MSSQLServer instance.

    When I am trying to select the reporting services, the features are disabled.

    Any ideas on how I can solve this issue.

    Thanks

    Nate

  • Hello Nate,

    You selected "Add feature to an existing instance" and in your existing instance SSRS is already installed; select "New instance" instead to install a new instance of SSRS.

  • thank you Olaf. I was able to install it in that way on a single server.

    Now I need to install a second instances of SSRS on a SQL server cluster. Can I use the same methodology?

    Thanks
