Need to move all the reports from server A (http://servera/reports) to server B (http://serverb/reports).

Where can I tell the physical location of these reports ? Are they saved in a physical folder or in a SQL database ?

Where can I grant a user right access to use the report in server A ?

Does it mean the SQL reports are stored in a database rather than a folder on a hard disk ? Tks

This is migrating Reporting Server.

You have to move the reports manually to the folder.

You can also deploy reports to the new report manager by attaching the existing reports ...

 Download the report as a .rdl file from one server, and upload the .rdl file to create the report on the new server

No need to worry for that,

You can download .rdl files directly from report manager


Store to a local folder

Paste them to remote server folder

upload to that report manager from the folder using upload
