I am having a SQL Server with SSRS running on one machine.  I have another computer running a database application that will query and update data within the database.  
I am wonder if I locate the Report server on my database application machine.  Do I need to install any SQL Server component on that machine?

You'll need to install the Reporting Services service.  But why would you want to do that?  That "other computer" sounds more like a client machine, so running SSRS on a client machine would be a bit weird.

Hi,

You'll also need a license for the installation of SSRS on the second machine as well.
Can make it expensive.

What do you think you may gain by installing SSRS on the application machine? Queries generated by SSRS will run quicker if on the DB Server (rather than being passed across your network), unless the loading on the server is high.
