How to: Start Reporting Services Configuration Manager

In this article, we will learn how to start RSCM (Reporting Services Configuration Manager) to configure a Report step by step. But first we need to see what are the software requirements: -

(1) First, we need to have a MS SQL Server. Download SQL Server.
(2) Second, we need Report Builder. Download Report Builder directly from here.

This article is the continuation of the previous article How to create SSRS Report using SQL Server and Report Builder?

Now, we will proceed step by step to understand better. Guys, following first three steps, will start your reporting service which is the aim of this article. And last two steps help you to give a URL which we will use to host our service in our upcoming SSRS article series. Without wasting time let’s start:

Add a new TCP Port 9090 or whatever and IP Address to "All Assigned". Click OK. Again Click OK at Advanced Multiple Web Site Configuration windows.
