SSRS is used in Znode for reporting purposes. Please find the below settings to Configure SSRS:

Configure SSRS

Start Menu → Programs → Microsoft SQL Server (2008/2014/2016...) Configuration Tools → Reporting Services Configuration Manager

In order to install the initial setup/configuration of SSRS or to modify the configuration of an existing installation, you need to start the “Reporting Services Configuration Manager”. The Configuration Manager can largely be treated as a wizard as you move down the tabs on the left side of the window.


  1. Set the Service Account. For local install we can rely on local account but it is strongly recommended to use Domain user account on the production server.

  2. Once you’ve made you selection and entered logon details click the Apply button.
