I manage several SSRS 2008 R2 instances with several hundred reports. Quite a few of these reports have subscriptions and data driven subscriptions. We also have a few shared datasets. The scripter seems to work fine with reports and shared data sources. However my shared datasets do not get deployed and none of the subscriptions are coming over. Any ideas on how I can accomplish having the shared datasets and subscriptions scripted properly. Thanks in advance for any input you may have.

When I used this tool to migrate to the new server 136 items were migrated and it took just a few minutes. When I inspected the new reporting server and compared it to the old all items I ask for were on the new server, intact and functioned the same as on the old server.
Can you please let me know if this is moved to a different location? Tuesday, April 23, 2013 - 11:01:12 AM - mjones Hey thanks for the link! Tuesday, April 23, 2013 - 10:15:30 AM - Dale Nov1ce; I suppose you could.

I have read the and understand I may unsubscribe at any time. Wednesday, June 22, 2016 - 2:44:35 AM - luoki Hi Dale, thanks for it, i had download the RSSscripter (the same versio with your), but i got error when try to scripting, any idea for it?
The script can be used to copy content between report servers of the same mode or different modes. For example, you can run the script to copy content from a SQL Server 2008 R2 native mode report server to a SQL Server 2012 SP1 (11.0.3x) SharePoint mode report server. You can run the script from any server where RS.exe is installed. For example, in the following deployment, you can: • Run RS.exe and the script ON Server A. • To copy content FROM Server B • TO Server C Server name Report Server Mode Server A Native Server B SharePoint Server C SharePoint For more information on the RS.exe utility, see. Items and resources the script migrates The script won't write over existing content items of the same name.
Monday, April 16, 2012 - 1:06:12 PM - MWise I moved/upgraded our 2005 report server db just like LSN. Deattached/Attached and then let Reporting Services upgrade the database. I think I may have had to export/import the encryption keys, but it was pretty easy as I remember. Monday, April 16, 2012 - 12:34:33 PM - LSN I do like RS Scripter very much, but in the scenario you describe, why wouldn't you just attach your ReportServer db to the new SSRS 2008 instance? It would have upgraded your db for you and all your reports and other objects would have been just there without additional work.
Note: the user will be listed as the “creator” of shared schedules and “modified by” account for report items, in the target server. -v tst='SITE' OPTIONAL.
Optionally, you can create folders or subfolder for each user. Log in as one of the users with “My Reports” content. In Report Manager, click the My Reports folder. Click the Details view for the folder.

It would be nice if there were other mechanisms to get you the answers we need more timely, but this tool is used as is with little instruction. Best hope is for people that have used this be nice enough to provide input. I've used this tool to migrate reports 2005 to 2012. It was a little frustrating at first because my subscriptions were not transferring. In reviewing the log file generated by this process I really paid attention to the errors. Although you'll not see 'your subscriptions didn't generate because', resolving those errors is key. You may still receive errors that the parameter is not supplied and for any.rdl error your subscription for that report more than likely won't generate.

Good luck Unfortunately, the RSScripter tool is seriously outdated. It only supports SSRS until 2008. 2008R2 and 2012 are not supported and that's most likely why you run in so many errors. I have looked into alternatives and used for one project. A colleague of mine used VBscripts together with the SSRS web service to deploy everything.

When you run the RSScripter tool this will extract the appropriate folder and/or reports that you select. For this Blog I am taking the folders and reports. Your script extract location will generate the same folder structure as you see in Report Manager as well as 3 types of files in each of the sub folders: •.
(We are working towards a solution.) • Linked reports are not support in SharePoint mode, hence not backed up. • Database connection to source server catalog is made using Windows Integrated credentials of the user running the tool. • Target server • Target server must be SharePoint integrated mode. (We are working on support for native mode.) • The web application must be using Windows classic authentication mode.
Monday, April 16, 2012 - 4:09:11 AM - PatJ I used it to move over 600 report and associated datasources, subscriptions etc from a sql 2005 server to sql 2008 and it was brilliant - easy to use and effective. I considered copying the report server database but this was better! Monday, March 19, 2012 - 10:13:09 AM - BobC A few months ago I used this tool for moving from 2005 to 2008R2.

After running the batch file, I see the datasource along with the data files but while running the report, it gives a message 'Cannot connect to datasource. Login failed for sa'. Deleting the existing shared datasource and adding it again and remapping it to reports, makes it work again. Any ideas on how to get rid of the problem. The name of the datasource matches the data source embeded in the rdl file, not sure why its happening. Any ideas will be appreciated. I am trying RS Scripter for the first time.
The first column is just a label and can be anything you like, but it must be unique. The second column is the actual link to the reporting server and should be of the form for SQL 2000 servers and for SQL 2005 and 2008. I am not going to go through each tab; the tool includes a very good readme that describes all the available options.
As part of our SQL Server infrastructure consolidation project, it was decided to consolidate multiple companies SQL Server 2005 / SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services instances to a new dedicated SQL Server 2012 Report Services instance. These existing SQL Server Reporitng Services instances hosts many business critical SSRS reports, data sources and subscriptions. In order to complete this task, I’ve to make sure that, all reports and other artifacts are migrated successfully from the existing SQL Server 2005/ SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services instances to the new SQL Server 2012 Report Services instance. Fl 12 reg key download. Well, we all know that this is not a simple task that can be performed manually, because it involves, manually saving each report file locally on these Report servers manually, and then moving and uploading the report files into the new location of SQL Server 2012 Report Server? This also means that I have to again create data sources and subscriptions for these reports. Fortunately, after doing some research, I found two tools that can be used for this Reporting Services migration task. The first tool is from Microsoft, that can be used for migrating reports and other artifacts from SQL Server 2008 R2 and later versions report servers to the new SQL Server 2012 Report Server.
Download Rsscripter Tool
Update: The download link and the sqldbatips site seems to be down for quite sometime now and I am not sure if it’s going to revive ever or not. I came across a project on CodePlex which talks about installing and configuring Reporting Services Scripter (RS Scripter) as part of the SQL Server install process, not sure how well it’s going to work but here is the link to the project - In case you are not able to find the executable for RSScripter look at (if it’s still there ) If you are using SSRS then chances are high to come across a scenario where you want to deploy reports developed on development machine to the production server, there are various ways to do this and one of them is to use tool. Here are the steps to do this - 1. Creating Report Deployment Script • Download the Reporting Services Scripter - • Update the servers.xml; change the reportservice value if your ReportServer name is different. • Run the RSScripter.exe. • Click on Options, and select the options selected in images below( for more information about Scripting Options check the readme file - ) – • Change the SQL 2005 RS EXE Location in the Global tab as per the location of SQL server and Apply – • Select SQL 2005 from the Report Server dropdown and click on Get Catalog, all the reports, data source, Schedules, Roles etc. Present in report server will be displayed – • Select all the reports, data source, schedules and roles you want to transfer.
