What are the procedures of migration a Report Definition File to another server ?
I need to migrate a Report from my UAT server to PRD server.
(1)Generated a Report Definition File in the UAT server.
(2)Copy this rdl file to the PRD server.
(3)Modify these portion of the rdl file :

... ... ...
<ConnectString>Data Source=the PRD machine name;Initial Catalog=hkprovision</ConnectString>
... ... ...
<rd:ReportServerUrl>http://the PRD machine name/ReportServer</rd:ReportServerUrl>
... ... ...

(4)Upload this rdl file onto the PRD server through its Report Manger

Am I correct ?
Please point out if there are somethings I missed.
Thanks.

yup, that's basically how you'd do it, but if you have a fair number of reports it could become a bit of a pain. I'd suggest you look into the Reporting Services Scripter available here: http://www.sqldbatips.com/showarticle.asp?ID=62

It's a great free tool for scripting the migration of reports from one server to another, just like you are doing with UAT/Prod etc...
