CRM 2011 Installation with existing Reporting Services RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have Reporting Services 2008 running for general reporting. During CRM 2011 installation can we point to that instance for CRM to use? How will that affect Reporting Services? Is it better to have a dedicated Reporting Services installation for CRM?


    Thank you

  • It doesn't matter.  You can use your existing instance but you need to make sure that the account used for it's app pool is part of the privusergroup along with the report server machine in Active directory.  I think this is automatic potentially though when you specify your report server as part of the CRM 2011 setup.
