Migrating reports

If you have custom Reporting Services reports in an existing Netcool® Configuration Manager installation, and are integrating with Network Manager, which has its own Reporting Services solution, you migrate your custom reports from the stand-alone to the integrated version of Reporting Services.

Before you begin

If you are installing Network Manager on the same server as your existing Netcool Configuration Manager installation, you must export your custom reports before installing Network Manager.

About this task

The report migration procedure is different for single and multiple server integrations.
If you are installing Netcool Configuration Manager and Network Manager on the same server
  1. Export the custom reports from the existing Netcool Configuration Manager version of Reporting Services and copy them to a safe location.
    Note: You export your custom reports before installing Network Manager to prevent the existing reports from being overwritten.
  2. Disable and uninstall the existing Netcool Configuration Manager version of Reporting Services.
  3. Install Network Manager and integrate it with the existing version of Netcool Configuration Manager as documented.
  4. Import the custom reports into the Network Manager version of Reporting Services.

    HG to reviewers: Why not uninstall the existing version as well?
