Hi Guys,

I have a problem that I've been trying to solve for a little while now but to no avail. So without further hesitation, here it is:

Environment Details:


Old Report Server:

Native Mode Installation
SQL Server Standard Edition
Build Version: 9.00.3042.00

New Report Server:

Native Mode Installation
SQL Server Enterprise Edition SP1
Build Version: 10.0.2740.0

Additional Notes:

The Reporting Services was not upgraded from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008. A new installation of Reporting Services was made on the New Report Server and the Reports themselves were migrated across. This caused the actual reports to have new IDs assigned to them. (I did not implement the installations, or do the upgrade, I was just handed the environment)

Problem:

I need to migrate report history for certain reports to the new installation as the first step in the process (Second step would be to change the installation mode to SharePoint Integrated mode). Though my knowledge of the Reporting Services internals is not that great I need help. Has anyone had this problem before and is there any way forward that I can get the history migrated for matching reports and not break the new installation?

If there is any other information you need I will do my best to get it for you...

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

Anthony

you will have another problem whan you change to sharepoint mode, as you will need to create a brand new SSRS db as you cannot run a native mode database in a sharepoint mode ssrs configuration or the other way round.

getting the report history shouldn't be much trouble as long as the catalog hasnt changed in terms of where objects are stored, if the paths on 2005 match the paths on 2008 its a simple join to catalog and history and snapshotdata replacing the 2005 report ids, for that stored in 2008, you will need to do this again when you switch modes, so I would suggest switching modes now then doing the history import.

how to switch ssrs modes
