a> MOSS 2007 installed on the machine.
b> SQL 2008 installed with the report server configuration to be done.
Today I will be discussing the configuration of Reports 2008(as i selected to configure it later) which can be integrated with MOSS 2007. The steps are as follows -
1> Go to Start --> All Programs --> Microsoft SQL Server 2008 --> Configuration Tools --> Reporting services Configuration Manager. The page opens up as shown in the image below. See that the report Service status is started.
2> Fill up the details about the service account that will be used to the report server database and also the sharepoint config and the content database as shown in the screenshot below.
3> Provide the details of the report server web service URL. you can keep it as default or you can provide details as shown in the screenshot below.
4> Coming to the database, we need to click on Change database button inorder to configure the report server databases.
5> After Clicking on the Change Database button, the Change Database page comes up. Here we can either connect to an existing Reporting Server Database or create a new Report Server database. Then click on Next after selecting the Create new Report Server Database as shown below.
6> Then provide the Database server name with the authentication type as Integrated Security. Then click on Next.
7> we then come to the database page where we mention the name of the report server database and also where the report server should be configured in Native mode or in Sharepoint Integrated mode. As we are integrating SSRS 2008 along with MOSS 2007, we select the latter option. Then we click on Next.
8> Finally the configuration process takes place and once done, we click on finish.
9> Once the configuration is done, we come back to the main page of Reports Services Configuration Manager where all the details are reflected as per the setting we did in the above steps.
10>Next we do the configuration of the Report manager URL as shown in the screenshot below. We can keep the defaults also.
11> Then we do the email settings as shown in the screenshot below.
12> we can keep the execution account, encryption keys and scale out deployment as it is without any changes unless and until our requirement makes these mandatory for implementation.
Once this is done, we are ready for the sharepoint integration from SQL 2008 side.
In the next Blog, I will be explaining about the configuration from Sharepoint (MOSS 2007) side.
