SQL Server DBA Jobs

SSRS migration and renaming the ReeportServer database

14 October,2017 by Tom Collins

With an existing SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) deployment, renaming the ReportServer & ReportServerTempDb databases is not straightforward.

When the ReportServer database is initially created & named, it is created with hard-coded references to the ReportServerTempDb.

There are ways of hacking the stored procedures to point to a new database name – but it’s unsupported – and there is the high risk you will omit changes and create more problems for the service. It is not advisable to use the stored procedure hacking method

If you are migrating ReportServer databases from another installation onto a new SSRS installation – then the most effective way is to migrate the databases and reconfigure SSRS and point to the migrated databases.

It is important to migrate the ReportServer databases as a pair. In other words, the Report Server database and the ReportServer tempdb.

When you’ve migrated the databases to a new SSRS instance – use the rsconfigtool to use the new database.
