Is Report Viewer 2016 (15) compatible with a SQL Server 2008 R2 backend? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is Report Viewer 2016 (v15) compatible with a SQL Server 2008 R2 and SSRS 2008 R2 backend?

    We have a client who will not be upgrading their database server in time for the release. I need to know if I need to remove the Report Viewer upgrade from the release.

    And yes, I am fully aware that 2008 R2 is out of extended support.

    Many thanks,

    James

    If you use the sqlserver 2008 r2 as the data source ,seems there is no issue .

    If you use the sqlserver 2008 r2 as the ssrs host database , seems there would be exist some compatibility issue.

    Hope it can help you.

  • Hi Eric,

    I have marked your original reply as the answer. I have not been able to verify as we pulled the upgrade from the release.

    Many thanks,
