June 15, 2013 Leave a comment

Hi all,

as promised in my last post .. that I will test a scenario were in .. if we try to install reporting services using a Slipstream SP2 of SQL

server 2008 R2 .. then we may hit issues and installation may fail .. all together for reporting services ..

Nicolas Cain has covered more on this at this site –>

you may refer the post over here how to Slipstream SP2 or SP1 for SQL 2008 R2

below are the step followed for installing SQL reporting services along with DB engine (using Slipstreamed SP2 of SQL server 2008 R2)

my OS was windows 7 SP1 64 bit ..


1>  selected reporting services and database engine on feature selection page ..


2> update setup media compatibility test PASSED .. signifying slipstream installation


3> Giving a named instance for this particular instance ..


4> choosing to install NATIVE mode Default installation for Reporting services


5> verified that our installation is a SLIPSTREAMED installation of SP2


6> confirm the features selected


7> summary log file .. shows success for reporting services feature installation ..



I was able to connect to reporting services using SSMS server name as –> http://machinename:8080/ReportServer_SQL2008R2_INST3

I have tweaked the port no. from 80 to 8080 .. as I have trouble connecting to the same using reporting configuration

also I have recreated the reporting databases using reporting configuration GUI ..

all in all I did not face any particular issues with installation and this issue can be specific to windows OS

do share details .. if you are facing any issues for installation of reporting services using Slipstreamed method ..

Enjoy 🙂
