Tutorial :How to determine SQL Server version on a reporting server


All of our production instances of reporting services are split into the web server components and the reports database components.

I know that you can detect the instance of SQL Server on a database server by the following TSQL:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'),  SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')  

However, in our case, the reporting servers do not have a database server components installed. So how do I detect what service pack is installed in this situation?


Manually, or using web scraping, browse to


and the version number is at the bottom of the page.

Or programatically:

using System;  using System.Collections.Generic;  using System.IO;  using System.Text;  using System.Web;  using System.Web.Services;  using System.Web.Services.Protocols;    class Sample  {      static void Main(string[] args)      {          // Create proxy object and set service           // credentials to integrated          ReportingService2006 rs = new ReportingService2006();          rs.Url = "http://<Server Name>/_vti_bin/ReportServer/" +              "ReportService2006.asmx";          rs.Credentials =               System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;            try          {              // Set the server info header               rs.ServerInfoHeaderValue = new ServerInfoHeader();                // Make a call to the Web service              CatalogItem[] items = rs.ListChildren("/");                // Output the server version and edition to the console              Console.WriteLine("Server version: {0}",                 rs.ServerInfoHeaderValue.ReportServerVersionNumber);              Console.WriteLine("Server edition: {0}",                 rs.ServerInfoHeaderValue.ReportServerEdition);          }            catch (Exception e)          {              Console.WriteLine(e.Message);          }      }  }  


In your browser go to


Just look at the bottom of the page


The Reporting Services Configuration Tool details the SQL Server version running.
