In-Place Upgrade and SSRS RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Windows 2012R2 Server that is a SQL Server 2012 server with native SSRS installed. We plan to upgrade in place to Windows Server 2016 and SQL Server 2016.  Will we need to do anything special for SSRS or IIS after the upgrade or will everything stay intact?  Thanks.

  • Hi Before upgrading

    1) Take SQL Backups of ReportServer and ResportServerTempDB

    2) Connect to SSRS through via InternetExplorer and take backups of Encryption keys with password

    3) Once the SQL Server 2016 installed

    4) Restore the SQL Backups of 2012 from step 1

    5) Configure SSRS to use with existing restored databases ( 2012 databases)

    6) Restore encryption key from step 2

    7) Restart the SQL SSRS services


    Before doing please test this setups....
