Deploying Crystal Reports (2008)

Hello,

I'm starting with Crystal Reports 2008 and I'm a bit stuck with what I should do with reports after they're done...
I used to work with SS Reporting Services and there we'd have a web-server, we'd deploy reports to there.
What happens for Crystal Reports? I need users on the intranet be able to see them. How do we setup a web (or some other hosting) server for Crystal and how do I deploy them there?

Thanks

it's similar in CR...
except you need to have a Crystal Reports Server running... and you deploy your reports there.

Thank you,

A bit more details please. The article lists common servers for CR with short desriptions.
I'm interested in the official version for now - Crystal Report Server.
How do you deploy exactly? There is no option/function in the CR 2008 designer (or whatever it's called).

do you have Crystal Server installed somewhere on your network?

if so, are you able to log into the management interface, CMC (central management console)?

No, we don't have anything yet installed. So, the deployment is done on the server side, not from the designer (for RS it can be done from either and more common to do it from VS).

Hi Yurich,

Once server is installed, you will have the option to Save an RPT file from the designer tool directly to the Enterprise server. However you must complete publication of the RPT inside the server tool - you log in, store the password, set up parameters the way you want to, etc.

Once you buy CRS2008, you also have access to Administrative Tools (it is a separate install on the disc). One is called Publishing Wizard. This one is kind of cool because you can publish reports in bulk, saving passwords, setting default parameters, etc. as part of a wizard.
