I have the following SharePoint 2010 Environment:

  • 2 - WFE
  • 3 - SharePoint Application Servers
  • 1 - SharePoint Database Server with 2008R2

One of the Application Servers has SQL2012 SP1 installed with Reporting Services for SharePoint and the latest Reporting Services Add-In. Both WFEs also have the latest Reporting Services Add-In installed.

I have followed the instructions on sites like this: Installing and Configuring SQL Reporting Services

I am able to run the following cmdlets from PowerShell:

get-spserviceinstance -all |where {$_.TypeName -like "SQL Server Reporting*"} | Start-SPServiceInstance

After completing the above steps I am unable to see SQL Server Reporting Services Service in the Services on Server within Central Administration nor am I able view SQL Server Reporting Services Service Application in Manage Service Applications.

What steps am I missing?

First instict, I have always installed the add-in on ALL sharepoint servers. Which server is Central Admin running on (assuming one of the application server) and make sure that server has the SSRS add-in installed.

On second thought; do you see the SSRS application in the drop down for "new" service application?

  • Central Admin is running on one of app servers, not the one with SQL2012. No, I do not see the SSRS in the "New" dropdown. I will try installing the Add-In on all App Servers.

  • Installing the SSRS Add-In on all Application Servers seems to have done the trick.
