Migrating SQL 2005 Reporting Services

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

I have been asked to help with Migrating a SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services server from one host to another. I set up a couple VM’s and away I went. I found that it is pretty straight forward though. I did run into a couple little hickups along the way but nothing to dificult. I did have a problem though, after I attached the database on the new server and brought up the reporting services configuration manager. I could not get the server to initialize. To resolve the issue I had t delete the encryption keys. Then I was able to initialize the server but I could not get any of my reports to run. Kept getting error about connection string not being initialized. I then changed the encryption keys in the configuration manager and all started working again. One other thing is to make sure that you have the RSExecRole setup. Here is a link on migrating a reporting services server.
