  1. Configure the ASP.NET Application Pool.

By default ReportPlus Server will use Network Services as the identity for the ASP.NET application pool. If you want to install the ReportPlus SQL Server database on an external machine, you will need to configure a custom Windows Active Directory account to be the identity of ReportPlus Server’s application pool. The user must have the necessary administration permissions on the web server where ReportPlus is being installed and the remote SQL Server.

The ReportPlus Diagnostics page needs to run scripts, so you must have scripting enabled in your web browser. The Diagnostics page address is: http://localhost:9021/diagnostics.html.

  1. Configure Map widgets.

ReportPlus Web relies on Bing Map for its map widgets. You will need to modify the following section of the web.config file (C:\inetpub\wwwroot\RPlusServer) with your own Bing Map Key to see maps.
