This topic details the steps required to install the Report and Dashboard Server.
To learn about the system requirements needed to deploy the Report and Dashboard Server in your business environment, see System Requirements.
After you run the Report and Dashboard Server Installer, select Trial Installation or Registered Installation to begin the installation process.
Click Accept on the second page of the Installer after you choose the destination path for the Report and Dashboard Server and read the license agreement.
The next page of the Installer provides you with the following two options: Website, Task Scheduler Service, Worker Service and Worker Service Only.
The Report and Dashboard Server package includes the client and server parts.
The server part includes the Website, Scheduler service and Worker service.
The Website provides an in-browser user interface for administrating the Report and Dashboard Server; the Scheduler maintains the generation of reports based on a schedule; the Worker actually generates the reports.
By default, the package installs both the Scheduler and the Worker. However, you may choose to install additional Worker services on different machines (see Worker Installation).
On the next page, specify the name for the Report and Dashboard Server Website, and assign a free port to it.
On the SQL Server Connection page, specify which server the database will be deployed on and how to connect to this server.
You should also define a user that can administrate the SQL Server, because these connection settings will be used during installation.
For the Report and Dashboard Server to use the same user credentials to access data, enable the corresponding check box (only available if the "SQL Server Authentication" is enabled).
Alternatively, you can specify other credentials for accessing data on the next page.
To open the administration module in your Web browser, click Finish after installation is complete.
If the HTTP Activation is not enabled on the computer, the following message is displayed.
