I am trying to help out a buddy of mine. He has this server that has SQL 05 and I noticed that he had Business Intelligence so Im trying to get the Report Server installed. I went into Report Services Configuration Manager and right away I get an error:

No report servers were found on the specified machine
Invalid namespace

Does this mean that during SQL Server setup that not all the options were checked? How can I fix this? Ultimately I am trying to get SSRS, SSIS and SSAS all to work on this server.

These all are part of SQL Server full version.

May be you have installed advance express edition.

If you did with full version then modify the installation and add SSIS, SSRS, SSAS components with the Installed Data Engine component.

I know its not SQL Express Edition so how do I go about installing what I need(Report Server). Keep in mind that I can run BI and create a report, I just cannot Publish and I cant configure which leads me to believe the Report Server was not installed. How do I go about installing this? THANK YOU!!!

You cannot see what is installed on the server from Management Studio.

Check the services - if Reporting Services is installed, you see 'SQL Server Reporting Services' as a service. Also, if installed, you should find Reporting configuration manager under SQL Server/Configuration Tools/Reporting Services Configuration Manager in menu.

For installing you'll need SQL Server 2005 installation media (as suggested above already). Run SQL Sever setup and add feature (SSRS) to existing your SQL Server installation.
