Configuration Files (Reporting Services)

Reporting Services stores component information in the registry and in configuration files that are copied to the file system during setup. Configuration files contain a combination of internal-use-only and user-defined values. User-defined values are specified through Setup, the configuration tools, the command line utilities, and by manually editing the configuration files.

Modifying the configuration files is only necessary if you are adding or configuring advanced settings. Configuration settings are specified as either XML elements or attributes. If you understand XML and configuration files, you can use a text or code editor to modify user-definable settings. For more information about how to modify a configuration file or to learn more about how the report server reads new and updated configuration settings, see How to: Modify a Reporting Services Configuration File.

NoteNote

In previous releases, Report Manager had its own configuration file named RSWebApplication.config. That file is now obsolete. If you upgraded from a previous installation, the file will not be deleted but the report server will not read any settings from it. If the file exists on your computer, you should delete it. In SQL Server 2008, all Report Manager configuration settings are stored in and read from the RSReportServer.config file. To review a list of which settings were deleted or moved, see Breaking Changes in SQL Server Reporting Services.

The following table provides a description of where configuration settings are stored. Most configuration settings are stored in configuration files that are included with Reporting Services. By default, the installation directory is <drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.n.
