Bret Hill recently published an article on how to localize a Reporting Services report. This is an important article because of its completeness. If you’ve ever tried to localize a report for a controlled, load-balanced web site, you’ve probably spent a lot of time with Mr. Google, because you have to read a bit here and a bit there to get all the pieces of information you need.
One of the places this article stands out is the end of the article, in which it outlines what must be done AFTER you’ve gotten it working on your own box. What needs to be done for an automated build? What configuration of servers must be done in your test and production environments? Bret draws a clear line between the one-time configuration tasks on each report server (which should be locked down in a production environment), and the tasks to be done when report changes are made—which turns out to be simply a file copy to a network share!
