This week, we made available a Release Candidate of SQL Server 2017. Alongside it, we’re pleased to make available a Release Candidate of SQL Server 2017 Reporting Services.
As we described with the release of CTP 2.1, we moved Reporting Services installation from the SQL Server installer to a separate installer. This is a packaging change, not a product change; access to SQL Server Reporting Services is still included with your SQL Server license. The new installation process keeps our packages lean and enables customers to deploy and update Reporting Services with zero impact on your SQL Server deployments and databases.
