Configuring Reporting Services
Use the Reporting Services Configuration tool to configure a SQL Server Reporting Services installation. If you installed a report server using the files-only installation option, you must use this tool to configure the server so that it can be used. If you installed a report server in the default configuration installation option, you can use this tool to verify or modify the settings that were specified during setup. If you are upgrading from a previous version, you can use this tool to update the report server database to the new format. For more information about deployment considerations and options for configuring Reporting Services, see the Deployment (Reporting Services in Native Mode) and Deployment (Reporting Services in SharePoint Integrated Mode) sections in SQL Server Books Online.
The Reporting Services Configuration tool can be used to configure a local or remote report server instance. You must have local system administrator permissions on the computer that hosts the report server you want to configure.
The online help for the Reporting Services Configuration tool is a subset of the product documentation for SQL Server Reporting Services. Complete product documentation can be found in SQL Server Books Online.
