Run the SRSUpgradeTool program. This tool saves and restores three configuration files that were modified during Operations Manager 2007 Reporting installation. Run the following command from a command prompt: SRSUpgradeTool.exe /InstanceName:<InstanceName> /Action:PreSQLUpgrade

Where <InstanceName> is the name of the SQL instance that houses the SQL Reporting Services database. If you used the default instance name, you can use MSSQLSERVER.

Restart the SQL Server Reporting Services service, and verify the configuration by using Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

Upgrade the SQL Server 2005 installation to SQL Server 2008, using the procedures outlined in the SQL Server 2008 product documentation.

Caution
Do not upgrade to SQL Server 2008 SP1 until after you have completed these steps.
Run the SRSUpgradeTool program again to update the registry entries for Operations Manager 2007 Reporting to point to the new SQL Server Reporting Services location. Run the following command: SRSUpgradeTool.exe /InstanceName:<InstanceName> /Action:PostSQLUpgrade

Run the SRSUpgradeHelper program to move the Operations Manager Reporting files to the new SQL Server Reporting Services directory and to set the SQL Server Reporting Services configuration. Run the following command: Msiexec /i SRSUpgradeHelper.msi DATAREADER_DOMAIN=Lab DATAREADER_USER=momsdk MGSERVER=cRMS SRS_SERVER=cSRS\instance1
