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.

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.
