Hello experts,

I'm trying to document the storage part of my Reporting Services and I don't have a clear sense of where the files end up being stored. For example, when someone opens Report Builder and saves a report, is it saved locally on their computer or on the server? Also, are report definitions stored straight to the ReportServer database or as external files? I figure there must be documentation on these items somewhere, but my Googling has been ineffective. Before I hunt through Books Online I'm wondering there is a central place where this information is described.

Thanks for any help,
webrunner

The reports XML is saved in the ReportServer database (unless you named it otherwise). The funny thing is I am unsure where in the documentation it specifies this, however this link may help. http://www.sqlservercentral.com/blogs/juggling_with_sql/2013/08/07/ssrs-download-all-rdl-files-from-report-server-in-one-go/


As for the configurations, technet has the best writeup....http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms155866.aspx

If you ever have the need to transfer the report files in bulk, then there is a great tool available that will do the work for you. I found it interesting that there was not a native GUI for moving report files in bulk.

Here is the link: ReportSync
