Chapter 12 Managing and Administering Your Reports In This Chapter Using Management Studio and Report Manager Uploading and moving reports Using linked reports Arranging folder hierarchies and My Reports Administering timeouts, trace files, and execution logs Understanding database storage Just as your desk needs cleaning, your car needs an occasional wash, and those nasty spills need a quick hand with a paper towel, your reporting environment needs attention to ensure that it runs like a well-oiled machine. Your report administrator, fortunately, has a handy set of tools for this task. I devote this chapter to how to use these tools. The two tools available for managing reports with Reporting Services are the SQL Server Management Studio new in SQL Server 2005 and the Report Manager. You can use Report Manager or SQL Server Management Studio to perform many key tasks such as viewing, searching, and subscribing to reports, and creating as well as managing report folders, linked reports, report history, schedules, data source connections, and subscriptions. In Chapter 11, I describe how to set properties and report parameters. In Chapter 13, I cover managing role definitions and assignments that control user access to reports and folders. This chapter is concerned with how to manage reports, how to administer the objects in Reporting Services, and special considerations about managing the disk space requirements of the Report Server.
