Please note the following points -
1. The BCP command could be modified as per ones need. E.g. Providing UserName/Password, etc.
2. Please update the SSRS Report Database name. Currently, it is set to default - [ReportServer]
3. The BCP does not create missing Directories. So, additional logic could be implemented to handle that.
4. SSRS stores the XML items (Report RDL and Data Source definitions) using the UTF-8 encoding.
It just so happens that UTF-8 Unicode strings do not NEED to have a BOM and in fact ideally would not have one.
However, you will see some report items in your SSRS that begin with a specific sequence of bytes (0xEFBBBF).
That sequence is the UTF-8 Byte Order Mark. It’s character representation is the following three characters, “ï»¿”.
While it is supported, it can cause problems with the conversion to XML, so it is removed.
