Reporting Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    What is the difference if we add reporting services in the current instance and if we install as seperate instance?

    During installation there is one option to select features. We can select database engine, ssis, ssrs. But the problem is that we cannot access reporting services from management studio. So I am thinking why we add this feature during database installation.

  • Adding the feature during installation installs the Reporting Services binaries. You will use the Reporting Services Configuration Manager to configure the reporting services instance. Accessing the administration console is via a web browser

  • Hi Learner,

    What's the error when you try to access reporting services from management studio. You should use the account who you set in the Service Configuration step when install Reporting Services to access reporting services from management studio. Please refer to the link below to ensure that you have install Reporting Services successfully.

    Hope this helps.
