I've just installed the August 2018 release of PowerBI Report Server onto the same Win 2012 server with SSRS 2016. I can get it running but it clashes with SSRS with URL reservations.

I've configured them to use different Virtual directories and ports but SSRS keeps breaking.

  • SSRS: http://ServerName:80/Reports
  • PBIRS: http://ServerName:8080/PBIReports

What have I missed?

Edit: I have SSRS 2017 and PBIRS working at the same time on my laptop. Both on Port 80 but with different virtual directories.

  • You can either have powerBI or ssrs on a given server.

I now have this working on my Win-2012 server with PBIRS (August 2018) and SSRS 2016.

First they need to have thier own ReportServer Databases. I used:

  • SSRS: ReportServer
  • PBIRS: PBIReportServer

The Webservice URL's use the same port number but different Virtual directories.

And the Webportal again uses the same port number, but different URLS.

And so far it seems to be behaving. I've restarted the server and both services started automatically and appear to be working.


I haven't used PowerBI report server, but you're missing one component of the SSRS installation. The /Reports folder is the Web location (aka the "Web Portal URL" in the SSRS Configuration manager), but it points to a /ReportServer App location (aka the "Web Service URL" in the SSRS Configuration Manager). Is the PowerBI report server pointing to the same /ReportServer port/location?

  • On the server they are using different ports for reportserver. On my laptop they are the same. Commented Oct 2, 2018 at 6:10
  • The issue was that the URL needed to share the same port, rather than compete with different ones (which I thought i needed to keep them separate). But you were close so I'll give you a +1 for effort ;) Commented Oct 3, 2018 at 3:19
