Reporting services isn't in iis RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've just installed sql server 2008 standar on a windows 7 x64 and the installation has finished without errors. In the installation I chose the reporting services.

    My iis is also installed in the windows 7 but when I enter in iis I don't see the reporting services but searching this in the services I can see that it is started with the local system account. I think it should be in the iis, I need to change several parameters.

    Can anybody tell why reporting services isn't in iis? Do I need to do anything else to start reporting services?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards.

  • The dependency on IIS was removed in 2008.  You need to manage SSRS through the reporting services configuration manager

    Here is a good post on it:

  • Hi Droig,

    As Mark has posted above, Reporting Services 2008 doesn’t require an installation of Internet Information Services (IIS). Instead, Reporting Services 2008 uses Http.sys directly from the server’s operating system to accept requests directed to URLs and ports configured for Reporting Services. This architectural change allows Reporting Services to exist without IIS and provides the same functionality.

    Reporting Services 2008 includes a complete set of tools for configuring and managing a report server installation. The tools have been redesigned to support a distinct set of tasks that no longer overlap in functionality and eliminate redundant tasks. For most Reporting Services installation configurations, you can use the Reporting Services Configuration Manager.
