Installing SSRS on one node (as Stand Alone) in a Failover Cluster

Hi Experts,

We have a SQL Server 2008/Windows 2008 R2 Active passive cluster. We need to have SSRS for reporting needs.

Since SSRS is not cluster aware and does not support failover, Can I go ahead and install SSRS on the passive node and choose "New SQL Server Stand Alone Installation" and install just the SSRS Server?

I would like to point this SSRS Databases on the existing Clustered SQL Server.

Please let me know if this plan looks OK.

Thanks in Advance,

I would install it on both and create a scale out deployment.

Thanks EvilPostIt.

the load on SSRS is very minimal. Very few reports executed occassinally.

Does the plan what ever I mentioned sound OK?

I wasnt suggesting the it from a load perspective, more from an HA perspective. But yes you can also do it the way you have suggested.
