How would I know reporting Services is configured?


I have installed SQL Server 2008 R2. I did it few months ago and I'm not a DBA. Now, we have 2 versions of reporting services. I can disable/remove the old one and keep the R2 version...I dont remember configuring the URL for R2 version...how would I know if I've already configured the server...the answer in the related question has "If it was never configured"...not sure  how I would know if I've already configured the R2 server?

>> You need to configure R2 report server

Here you go:

1. Open SQL Server Configuration manager from Start Menu -> Microsoft SQL Server -> Configuration Tools
2. Under Services you can see SQL Server Reporting Services (R2 Instance name)
3. Right click SQL Server Reporting Services and choose Configure
4. It will open up a wizard and just follow the link to configure that.

And disable the other instance of Reporting Services..

Last question....you've been answering the other thread as well about disabling and you gave me the steps in the other thread...for some reason..i thought to disable the previous version of the reporting services (not the R2 one)...i can just go to programs/control panel/admin tools/services and just stop the service there...seems like thats NOT the case, is this correct? ( I will follow the steps you sent in the other thread but just making sure)

Yes, for SQL Server related services, its recommended to do it with SQL Server Configuration Manager instead of Windows Services(services.msc) because SQL Server Configuration manager takes proper care of closing instances.
