    Ok, can you provide a bit more explanation on why they have to be redeployed and how I can redeploy them?

    Accepted Solution

    You can use a report writer or BIDS on Visual Studio 2008. open the files and deploy them to your new directory. If you are going to use 2005 you will have to deploy them to 2008 so that the reporting services can upgarde them to 2008 code.

    Used the following tool to script the reports, and then re-deploy them into the current ssrs server.
