How to Activate the Report Server Feature in SharePoint Central Administration

Report server integration settings are configured in SharePoint Central Administration after you install the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint Technologies. Before you can configure integration, the report server integration feature must be activated. If you start Central Administration and the Reporting Services section is not visible in Application Management, the Reporting Services Add-in is probably not activated.

Note:  By default, the feature is activated for the root site collection of the local SharePoint Web application. If the root site is not enabled or if you do not have a site collection defined when the Reporting Services Add-in is installed, the feature is not activated.

  1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.

  2. Click Site Actions.

  3. Click Site Settings.

  4. Click Site Collection Features.

  5. Find Report Server Integration Feature in the list.

  6. Click Activate.

    Oh if that was so. I was hoping it was just a little oversight on my part as the feature never showed up; Still after another re-install of the add-in still nothing in Central Admin.

    Michael, it sounds like you are running into a setup error. There is a setup log file in the %temp% folder for the user who is installed the Reporting Services Add-in. The file name is RS_SP_<number>.log. Each error in the log starts with the string "SSRSCustomActionError".
