Get started with SQL Server Reporting Services 2017

Prior to SQL Server 2017, there was an option to include SQL Server Reporting Services during SQL Server Installation.

If you have reviewed my previous post related to Installing SQL Server 2017 Development edition you would have noticed the absence of anything related to SQL Server Reporting Services 2017. This is by design.

In SQL Server 2017, you need to install SSRS 2017 separately. The installer file itself is very small about 100 MB. There are three advantages by using the new installer:
  • If you have installed SQL Server 2017 Database engine, it just takes a short while to install SSRS 2017
  • Update SSRS 2017 very quickly
  • The installer is stand-alone without bringing other programs in, you can always install the latest version without impacting your SQL Server databases or other features.
Download SSRS 2017 from here:
