Configure Reporting Services Unattended Execution Account

FineBuild can configure the Unattended Execution account used by Reporting Services. It can also configure the Sending Email address.

The unattended execution account is used by scheduled reports to connect to SQL Server, and for some other purposes in Reporting Services.

FineBuild Configure Reporting Services Unattended Execution Account

The Reporting Services Unattended Execution Account configuration relates to Process Id 5CHB, and is controlled by the parameters below:

Parameter Build SQL2005 SQL2008 SQL2008 R2 SQL2012 SQL2014 SQL2016
SetupRSExec FULL Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
SetupRSExec WORKSTATION Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
SetupRSExec CLIENT N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A

In order to maintain compatibility with older versions of SQL FineBuild, the parameter ConfigRSExec can also be used.

FineBuild also uses the following parameters to help Configure the Reporting Services Unattended Execution Account:
Parameter Default Value Description
RSExecAccount none Unattended Execution Account name. This must be a Domain account in the form domain\account
RSExecPassword none Unattended Execution Account password
RSEmail RSExecAccount Sending Email address for Unattended Execution

FineBuild will automatically configure the Report Services Unattended Execution Account and the Sending Email address.
