Setting the Url Property of the Web Service

At any time in your Microsoft .NET Framework applications, you can modify the base URL of the Report Server Web service to which your application is currently directed. To do this, simply set the Url property of the service object. For example:

Dim rs As New ReportingService2010()  
rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials  
rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/reportserver/ReportService2010.asmx"  
ReportingService2010 service = new ReportingService2010();  
rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;  
rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/reportserver/ReportService2010.asmx";  

The following example retrieves a report definition from one report server and uses that definition to create an identical report on a different report server:

Imports System  
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols  

Class Sample  
   Public Shared Sub Main()  
      Dim rs As New ReportingService2010()  
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials  
      ' Set the base Web service URL of the source server  
      rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/reportserver/ReportService2010.asmx"  

      Dim reportName As String = "/SampleReports/Company Sales"  
      Dim reportDefinition As Byte() = Nothing  

      Try  
         ' Get the report definition of a report on a source server  
         reportDefinition = rs.GetItemDefinition(reportName)  
         ' Set the base Web service URL of the destination server  
         rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/reportserver/ReportService2010.asmx"  
         ' Create a copy of the report on the destination server  
         Dim warnings As Warning() = {}  
         rs.CreateCatalogItem("Report", "Company Sales Copy", "/", False, reportDefinition, Nothing, warnings)        
      Catch e As SoapException  
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString())  
      End Try  
   End Sub 'Main  
End Class 'Sample  
using System;  
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;  

class Sample  
{  
   public static void Main()  
   {  
      ReportingService2010 rs = new ReportingService2010();  
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;  
      // Set the base Web service URL of the source server  
      rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/reportserver/reportservice2010.asmx";  

      string reportName = "/SampleReports/Company Sales";  
      byte[] reportDefinition = null;  

      try  
      {  
         reportDefinition = rs.GetItemDefinition(reportName);  
         // Set the base Web service URL of the destination server  
         rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/reportserver/ReportService2010.asmx";  
         // Create a copy of the report on the destination server  
         Warning[] warnings = {};  
         rs.CreateCatalogItem("Report", "Company Sales Copy", "/", false, reportDefinition, null, out warnings);  
      }  

      catch (SoapException e)  
      {  
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString());   
      }  
   }  
}
