Integrating Reporting Services 2008 with SharePoint March 4, 2009

Filed under: SharePoint,SQL — fmuntean @ 10:50 pm

This process is very simple once you figure out how to run it correctly in 5 easy steps:

1st – install SSRS (Reporting Services 2008) on a computer that it is already part of the SharePoint Farm or install the SharePoint server on it and add it to the farm.

2nd – create and configure the SSRS database in SharePoint integrated mode using Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

3rd – download the SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint Technologies and install it using the rsSharePoint.msi SKIPCA=1 command on all your SharePoint  servers that are part of the Farm and have the Windows SharePoint Services Web Application on them. Chose one server, I prefer one that has Central Admin on it, and run the rsCustomAction.exe /i command that it is available in %Temp% folder.

NOTE: Do not run the rsCustomAction.exe command a second time on any other server as it will fail and then remove the feature that was already installed.

4th – In Central Admin under Application Management -> Reporting Services, grant database access and configure the Reporting Services Web Service.

5th – On the site that you want to use the Reporting Services enable the Report Server Integration site collection feature.
