App-V Reporting: Start to Finish and Back Again RRS feed

  • Hey,

    For the setup have you checked out Ingmars blog post: http://www.ingmarverheij.com/app-v-5-0-reporting-server-missing-prerequisites/

    Also when you say you don't see anything can you be more specific? Are you going into SQL Reporting Services and running reports\queries?

  • I have not.  Today I've been attempting to divine exactly where SSRS should be installed.  On the Reporting Server or on the SQL Server (or can it be installed somewhere else?)

    Is it just me or does this aspect of App-V seem tragically undocumented?

  • Hello,

    SSRS isn't an App-V component, so I wouldn't expect to find howto install it among the App-V documentation.

    See these installation topics for SSRS;

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb522676(v=sql.105).aspx

    I am sure there are other step-by-step guides for SSRS, but these guides offers an overview of the decisions necessary to be made for a setup.

  • I sort of agree.  It's obviously quite easy to find instructions on installing and setting up SSRS.  What seems to be impossible to find is how SSRS integrates with App-V.  Where do I install SSRS?  How do I use it to generate shiny reports that make management happy?

  • I don't mean to seem condescending when I say this. But have you used SSRS before? A lot of people haven't, lots just run Queries in other ways to generate reports. Once you've got SSRS setup, you'll see how it integrates with App-V. It's a much more visual, UI driven means of running reports.

  • No offense taken and absolutely spot on.  No, I have never used SSRS.  What I'm hearing you say then is that SSRS is just a tool to create reports with, that the App-V Reporting Server itself does not come with any cool predefined reports which are accessible through SSRS.  If that's the case then I can use and existing SSRS and create new reports from the App-V database.

    That would explain a lot.  Thanks.

    ... so, there is your new report (and report definition!) on the one hand, and there is your new blog spot on the other hand... now what? ;-)
