We are considering a deployment of SSRS 2005 in our production environment... At least that's what the application/db team tell me. I know *nothing* about SSRS; but I know that this year we're upgrading to SQL 2008 so whatever we do now must work post-2008 install.

What licensing costs would we inccur by implementing SSRS? Keeping in mind I'm an idition about this.

About us, we have 1 server running SQL Enterprise 2005 and we're licensed by the processor. We are currently in compliance and we need to stay that way. We're looking at installing SSRS on the same SQL server. I've searched the Internet but have been unsuccessful thus far.

Thanks in advance!

SSRS is included with SQL Server and is part of the standard installation options.  What ever you are licensed for in SQL, you have the same license for SSRS.  That is what is so cool about SSRS, it comes with SQL fully functional at no extra cost.

I'm sorry; did you say there is no additional licensing fees on a Microsoft product? =) I just found the page I was looking for!
