We are moving to a scale out deployment of SSRS 2008 Enterprise with reporting services running on 2 front ends connecting to the "ReportServer" and "ReportServerTempDB" databases on a separate SQL Server 2008 cluster.

Can you run Reporting Services 2008 R2 while connected to the report server databases that live on a SQL Server 2008 (non R2) database server?

Thanks, Dan



Both SQL Server 2008 R2 and SDQL Server 2008 SSRS can run on a SQL Server 2005 or higher back end.


For SQL Server 2008 R2, there have been no changes to the content that is listed in this topic.


SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 can be used to host the databases. Do not use SQL Server 2000 or earlier versions of SQL Server.
