Dual Server TFS installation Reporting Services Edition error

Wednesday, January 14, 2009 0 comments

I don't install Team Foundation Server too often anymore.  I've been doing a lot of development and not a lot of managing teams.  This is a good thing. 

The first thing you should to when doing a dual server install is run this query on your SQL Server.

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition') 

Then install Reporting Services on your Team Foundation Server according to this chart.  If not, it won't work. 

For this edition of SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services
Use this edition of the Database Engine instance to host the database
SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services
SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services (local only).
Workgroup Edition

Evaluation Edition
Standard, Evaluation, Enterprise Editions (local or remote)
