Installing separate Report Server
Posted on 2008-10-02
Test environment - central site installed, separate server for SQL 2005, and several secondary sites (boundaries set up, client install tests successful). I would now like to install a separate Reporting site server. Since the Reporting server must be a primary site, I am running into issues during the SQL section of the site install screens. Can this new primary site utilize the current database from the central site? During install it states that 'this database is not empty - do you want to empty/overwrite it). How exactly is 'child' primary site set up so I can use it as a reporting site with the current active database on the SQL server? I have tested my central site as a reporting site, and that went smoothly, but I have the extra hardware to set up a separate site for reporting and would like to follow that route.
