Discontinued Functionality in SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services

This topic describes the SQL Server Reporting Services features that are no longer available in SQL Server 2005.


Rsactivate.exe is a command line utility that was used to initialize a single report server instance and multiple report server instances that were part of a single Web farm. Due to changes in how initialization and configuration are now performed, this utility is now obsolete and no longer provides this functionality. To create a scale-out deployment in SQL Server 2005, you use the Reporting Services Configuration tool. For more information about initialization changes, see Behavior Changes in SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services. For more information about configuring multiple report servers to use a single report server database, see Configuring a Report Server Scale-Out Deployment.
