I am having a disagreement with my sharepoint administrator.

They are saying that if we want to have SSRS in SharePoint integrated mode that they need an SQL local instance installed on every sharepoint server in the farm. Yet I was thought that we only needed to install the SSRS sharepoint parts on the sharepoint servers and then could point back to my SQL cluster?

Thanks

No, you don't need to install SQL Server on every SharePoint server in the farm.
I just checked on our SharePoint farm and there are definately some servers without a SQL Server database engine (the SP app server for example).

Thats what I thought too.

Did your sharepoint admin (or yourself) have any issues installing the SSRS Sharepoint integration and pointing to a remote DB Server?

Not that I recall. It was installed quite some time ago :-)
There were more issues with the PowerPivot integration...

Turns out our sharepoint admins installed visual studio 2013 on the Sharepoint server, and I think the LocalDB install is messing with the SSRS set up since we are getting this error:

"The edition of Reporting Services that you are using requires that you use local SQL Server relational databases for report data sources and the report server database"

I've told them to uninstall localDB which they say they did but the error is still occurring.

Seems indeed like some version issue. SSRS express does not support remote data sources.
