RSReportserver.config file question

Posted on 2004-11-15

I’m using Sql Server 2000 Reporting Services. I want to create a new subscription and run that report on each business day. But I don’t have that option, because I installed without SMTP while installing. Now I want to make changes in rsreportserver.config file. But I don’t see that file in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Reporting Services\ReportServer. How can I install config file or can I run that file in command prompt.

    Check the file in the report sever installed location.  The default location will be C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Reporting Services\ReportServer\RSReportServer. I think the report sever location is different.

    As Suku states, your rsreportserver.config should be under that directory. Few ideas...

    - Check that your windows explorer is showing hidden and system files.
    - Do a search on the C drive of the report server for RSREPORTSERVER.CONFIG

    Here's the XML code which you place under <Extensions> <Delivery> :

    <Extension Name="Report Server Email" Type="Microsoft.ReportingServices.EmailDeliveryProvider.EmailProvider,ReportingServicesEmailDeliveryProvider">
