Report Server Installation Overview

Plant Applications offers Web Reports for access through a browser and specialized Web Parts for access through a portal using the Report (Web) Server.

The Plant Applications Report Server must be installed after the Plant Applications Server, but before installing a Plant Applications Client. For information about setting up and using Web Reports and Web Parts, see the Plant Applications help.

Web Client Reports offer another means to access similar data. See Plant Applications Client Interfaces for information about accessing the Plant Applications Web Server Administrator and the Web Server.

You must also determine the account that the Plant Applications services uses to start. The account must have Log on as a service rights.

For information about installing and using SSRS, see the Proficy Plant Applications SSRS Report Configuration and Report Creation Guide, which is posted with KB16011.

Note: The Plant Applications services do not start when using the Local System account.
