How do I configure Reporting Services on an Always-On cluster?

Reilly, Todd 0 Reputation points

I need to install Reporting Services on an Always-On cluster with two nodes. Setting up the database is not a problem. I create the database using the listener address and then set up the Always-On availability group for it on the primary and use Automatic Seeding to create and set up the database on the secondary. I don't know how to configure Reporting Services however if the Reporting Services application sits on an Always-On cluster. Is that even possible? When you install Reporting Services should you use the listener address instead of the node name?

    As Dirk wrote, SSRS is not cluster aware.

    SSRS is mainly a web server and as with other web server you can setup a web farm = scale-out, see

    Add another report server to a farm (SSRS scale-out)
