Installing Reporting Services
Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Reporting Services provides server-based reporting functionality that you can use with SQL Server data sources and other data sources that are supported through Microsoft .NET data providers.
A complete installation of Reporting Services includes authoring tools, management tools, a report server engine, an API that is exposed as a Web service, documentation, and sample reports and applications.
Reporting Services includes several components that are installed on both client and server computers. These components include the report server, the report server database, Report Manager, Report Designer, and several command prompt utilities. For more information about these components and how they relate to one another, see Selecting Components of Reporting Services to Install and Reporting Services Component Overview.
To install Reporting Services components, you can either use a wizard to step through the process or you can install components from a command prompt.
