This article provides an overview of the RS.exe utility and common deployment errors that can occur during its use.
What is RS.EXE and What Does It Do?
RS.exe is a command line utility that performs various tasks for SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) RS. It is used to deploy reports and other files to a report server. RS.exe can be used in scripts to automate deployment processes. It can also be used to configure report servers and perform other utility processes.
When using RS.exe, the serverURL parameter is required to specify the report server to deploy to. Additional parameters can be used to specify the input file, mode configurations, and other variables. RS.exe can also be used in custom scripts with the Web Service to perform tasks such as publishing reports.
However, errors can occur when using RS.exe, such as deployment errors or authentication errors. To resolve these issues, it is recommended to check the syntax of the script and arguments, ensure proper permissions, and check the SOAP endpoint and password.

RS.exe is a command line utility that can be used for report server deployment and management. It is safe to use on your computer as long as you follow proper syntax and use it for its intended purpose. To use RS.exe, you will need an input file that contains the script with the utility and the web service URL of the report server. You can also specify additional arguments, such as variables and modes, as needed. The value of the input file should be the path to the script. RS.exe can be used for custom directory creation, report server deployment, and publishing reports.
