Microsoft Power BI team releases a Power BI Report as generally available. We can get this report server as part of Power BI premium but still, we can use the trial version for 180 days.

This post explains to you that how we can setup the Power Bi report server. You can download the Power Bi Report Server here.

Components

It contains two components

  1. PBIReportServer.exe
  2. PBIDestopRS (32 & 64 bit)

Installation

It is easy to install Power BI Report server in your system. Just follow the below screenshots and click Next and complete the installation.

Once the installation is completed, we need to configure the Report Server which is nothing but our regular SSRS report server configuration but for Power BI.

Configure as usual and test the web service and web portal URL.

To start developing the reports, need to install the Power BI Desktop RS which is same like regular Power Bi desktop but with few changes.

We can save the report in our on-premises portal with the PBIDesktop RS tool.
