Power BI Report Server On Premise - Pre Requisites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    As per what I see in the Pre Requisites of Power BI Report Server in the link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/report-server/system-requirements, I am seeing that it is mandatory to have SQL Server DB Engine for hosting the Report Server Databases. Can someone confirm on this? If so, which DB Licensing is required (Standard/Enterprise)? 
    The point is when SQL Server license gives MS BI also along with it, why is Power BI Report Server made as a separate offering and give SQL Server DB Engine as a pre-requisite for installing the Power BI Report Server? I dont see any license offering with SQL Server DB Engine as standalone.

    Please help correct my understanding if that is not the case?
