Installing the Reporting Services Add-in

New: 12 December 2006

The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint Technologies is a Web download that you can install on a server that has an instance of a SharePoint product or technology. It provides a set of features that enable you to run a report server within a larger deployment of Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

Features include a Report Viewer Web Part, a proxy endpoint, and application pages so that you can create, view, and manage reports, report models, and other report server content on a SharePoint site.

You must be a SharePoint farm administrator to install the Reporting Services Add-in.

Installing the Reporting Services Add-in is one of many steps that are necessary for integrating a report server with an instance of a SharePoint product or technology. For more information about the complete set of steps, see Configuring Reporting Services for SharePoint 3.0 Integration. The order of steps for configuring the servers is important. For best results, be sure that you do them in order.

To prepare to install the Reporting Services Add-in:

  1. Verify that you have two server installations - a report server and a SharePoint server - that meet the requirements for integrated operations. For more information, see Requirements for Running Reporting Services in SharePoint Integrated Mode.
  2. Download the Reporting Services Add-in to a server that has an instance of the SharePoint product or technology. You can download the Reporting Services Add-in from the Microsoft Download Center.
  3. If you are integrating a SharePoint farm with a report server deployment, copy or download the Reporting Services Add-in to each computer in the farm that has a Web server front-end.

  1. Run SharepointRS.msi on a computer that has the Web front-end for a deployment of the SharePoint product or technology that you want to configure for report server integration.
    Setup does not provide options for customizing an installation. Setup uses the existing folder structure of the current deployment when adding new files. Setup first verifies whether Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is installed. Then Setup copies the application files to the new folder.
    Setup installs the Reporting Services Add-in in all supported languages. There is no language-specific Setup program. Application files for all supported languages are installed when you run Setup.
    Setup does not configure the server for integration with Reporting Services. You must configure integration after Setup is complete.
    You can run Setup using the Installation Wizard, from the command line, or in files-only mode. For instructions, see How to: Install the Reporting Services Add-in.
  2. After Setup is finished, go to Administrator Tools and click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.
  3. Click Application Management. You should see a new section named Reporting Services. This section has links to pages used to specify integration settings. For instructions on how to specify the settings, see How to: Configure the Report Server Integration Feature in SharePoint Central Administration.

A deployment of Reporting Services integrates with a deployment of a SharePoint product or technology at the farm level. If you have multiple SharePoint Web applications in a farm configuration, you must install the Reporting Services Add-in on each computer that has a Web front-end. After you have installed the add-in on all computers, start Central Administration to configure report server integration for all the servers in the farm.

When Setup runs, it logs information to a log file in the %temp% folder for the user who is installed the Reporting Services Add-in The file name is RS_SP_<number>.log. Each error in the log starts with the string "SSRSCustomActionError".

The Reporting Services Add-in supports the languages in the following list. Application pages that you use on a SharePoint site to view and manage report server items, and errors and warnings that appear on those pages, are available in the supported languages. Messages that originate from the report server and reports that you design in Report Designer are available only in the languages supported by SQL Server 2005.

Report Builder supports the same languages as the Reporting Services Add-in. If you want to create a report that contains titles and labels in a language that is not supported by SQL Server 2005 and Report Designer, you can use Report Builder instead. For example, if you are using the Czech language version of a SharePoint product or technology and you want to create a report that uses Czech titles and labels, start Report Builder from a SharePoint site and create your report.

When you download the Reporting Services Add-in, you must choose a language. The Report Viewer Web Part (ReportViewer.dwp) will be available only in the language that you choose. The application pages and messages will be available in all supported languages, regardless of the language you select on the Download page.
