Install Sharepoint 2010 Web Front End (WFE) on a Report Server to Join Existing Farm

A short guide showing the steps involved in installing the Sharepoint Web Front End on a Report Server (i.e. your Business Intelligence server).

First you will need to install the Sharepoint 2010 SP1 Prerequisites.   If this is a SQL Server 2012 server, of course you would be installing these prerequisites prior to installing any SQL Server 2012 components.

  1. Install the Web Front End on the Report Server and join the existing farm (steps outlined here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa905869(v=sql.105).aspx
  2. Finally you will perform the integration between SQL Server and Sharepoint, the approach of which differs slightly between SQL Server 2012 and earlier releases.

Enjoy ! and don’t forget your rollback plan ! 🙂
