Database (Reporting Services Configuration)
Use the Database page to create and configure the report server databases that provide internal storage for one or more report server instances. If you are configuring a report server to use a remote report server database, you must use the Reporting Services Configuration tool to create the database.
Creating a report server database and configuring the connection is a multi-step process. To guide you through the steps, this page provides Wizards for each type of task. Permissions and logins are created or updated for you. You can monitor the status of each step in the Progress page. If an error occurs, you can click the error for information on how to resolve it.
A report server database must support a specific server mode. The default mode is native mode, but you can also create a report server database for SharePoint integrated mode if you are running a report server in a larger deployment of a SharePoint product or technology. For more information, see How to: Create a Report Server Database (Reporting Services Configuration) and How to: Create a Report Server Database for SharePoint Integrated Mode (Reporting Services Configuration).
To open this page, start the Reporting Services Configuration tool and click Database in the navigation pane. For more information, see How to: Start Reporting Services Configuration Manager.
