Default Reporting Services

Can anyone let me know what the licensing requirements are for Reporting Services?

Do I have to purchase an additional copy of SQL Server or can it be installed on the current server - if so would it require installing a named instance? Also do I need to purchase a copy of .Net Studio?

Thanks in advance
Ben

Reporting Services is part of the SQL Server 2000 license. There is not a separate license for Reporting Services. If you have a licensed copy of SQL Server 2000, you may run Reporting Services on the same server for no additional license fee. If you want to run Reporting Services on a server that is not licensed for SQL Server 2000, you will need to obtain a SQL Server 2000 license for that additional server.

Yes, a copy of Visual Studio .NET 2003 is required for each user who will use Report Designer, the report-authoring tool that comes with Reporting Services. Visual Studio .NET 2003 is not required for users who only view reports.

Thanks for your reply.

If you run Reporting Services on the same server, do you have to create a named instance?

Yes, Reporting Services requires a local connection to a SQL Server 2000(an instanace of SQL Server) relational database server for report metadata and caching.
