How To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2022: Install SQL Server Reporting Services

Microsoft SQL ServerThis article is part of the series on How To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2022; I do not claim to be an expert on SQL Server and this series is installing SQL Server in a development/testing/demo environment. If you’re installing SQL into a production environment there will be additional work required to harden the SQL Server and avoid security issues.

Once you have the correct version of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) downloaded install it by launching the installer.

On the Welcome page, click the Install Reporting Services button:

Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services: Welcome

Choose a free edition or enter the product key and then click Next:

SQL Server Reporting Services: Choose an edition to install

Accept the terms of the license terms and click Next:

SQL Server Reporting Services: Review the license terms

The Install Database Engine page is informational only, notifying you that you will need to have the SQL Server Database Engine installed on the same or other server, which I stepped through in this post. Click Next to continue:

SQL Server Reporting Services: Install Database Engine

Check and change the install location if required and then click Next:

SQL Server Reporting Services: Specify an install location

If you’re going to configure SSRS now, click the Configure report server button other wise click Close:

SQL Server Reporting Services: Setup completed

I will step through the configuration of SSRS in the next article of this series (check the index below).
