SQL Server Reporting Services are no longer part of the installation media since SQL Server 2017. They are delivered as a separate Installer.

The new Installation Wizard gives no option to install multiple (named) instances of SSRS 2017 on the same machine.

Is that still possible?


From my research, this is currently not implemented in SSRS 2017. I was not able to find any information in an official Deprecated Features document.

I found two votes to bring this functionality back to the product:

Update (May 2019): The feature will not be reimplemented

AdminChris Finlan (Program Manager, Microsoft Power BI) replied:

Hi all, We aren’t planning to re-implement multi-instance support as we had prior to SSRS 2017. We recommend using virtualization as an alternative, and we’re also looking at possibly adding container support in the future.
