Install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions using a command prompt

Applies To: CRM 2015 on-prem

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions are data processing extensions that are installed on the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services server. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions accept the authentication information from Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server and pass it to the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services server.

Installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions installs two data processing extensions: Microsoft Dynamics CRM Fetch data processing extension and SQL data processing extension. The Fetch data processing extension is required to create, run, and schedule Fetch-based reports in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The SQL data processing extension is required to schedule SQL-based reports in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions has the following requirements:

  • You must have all Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server roles installed before you run Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions Setup.

  • You must run Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions Setup on a computer that has Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services installed.

  • You can run Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services. Earlier versions of SQL Server are not supported. For detailed information about the versions of Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services supported, see Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Reporting requirements.

  • For smaller data sets and fewer users, it may be suitable to use a single-server deployment where SQL Server database engine and Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services run on the same server. However, with larger datasets or more users, performance will decrease quickly when complex reports are run, so we recommend that you use a multi-server deployment with one computer running SQL Server for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM databases, and another server for Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions accepts the same command-line parameters as Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server. To install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reporting Extensions in quiet mode, which uses an XML configuration file named install-config.xml, and creates a log file named log.txt, run the Setup program that is located in the SrsDataConnector folder from the Microsoft Dynamics CRM installation files as follows:

SetupSrsDataConnector /Q /CONFIG folderpath\install-config.xml /L c:\logfiles\crm\log.txt
