Managing a Report Server

A Reporting Services installation consists of several server-side features that you need to manage and maintain. The server features include the following:

  • The Report Server Web service, which runs within the Report Server service.

  • The background processing applications, which handle scheduled operations and report delivery.

  • The report server database.

To fully administer a Reporting Services installation, you must have the following permissions:

  • Membership in the local Administrator group on the report server computer. If your installation includes server features that run on remote computers, you must have administrator permissions on those computers if you want to manage those servers over a remote connection.

  • Database administrator permissions for the SQL Server instance that hosts the database.

  • If you are installing Reporting Services on a domain controller, you must be a domain administrator.
