In this guide we describe how to upgrade ReportServer 3.0.1 installations (RS3.0.1-5834) to ReportServer 3.0.2. This guide is valid for both ReportServer Enterprise Edition and ReportServer Community Edition as well as for manual installations and Bitnami installer installations. Note that this guide is only valid for upgrades from version 3.0.1. To upgrade from ReportServer 2.2.2 please follow the instructions given here for a manual upgrade and here for an upgrade of the Bitnami stack.
Before we continue, it is always adviseable to have a backup of your system.
The upgrade basically consists of replacing the webapp files of ReportServer, that is, the files under TOMCAT/webapps/reportserver (or TOMCAT/webapps/ROOT, depending on your installation) are removed and the freshly downloaded files are copied there instead. In the following we explain the upgrade in detail
In this upgrade guide we assume that you are working with an externalized configuration directory as described in Chapter 5 of the configuration guide. We are also assuming that you use Tomcat as application server. If you installed ReportServer 3.0.1 via the Bitnami installer or followed the best practice tutorial for Linux or Windows. If you are not yet using an external configuration directory, this is a good point to change your setup. As for this upgrade, the main difference is that you do not need to worry about your configuration changes, but can simply do a one-step copy and paste upgrade.
For Bitnami users: We here describe how to upgrade ReportServer without upgrading the entire Bitnami stack. If you want to upgrade the entire stack, please follow the steps outlined in the ReportServer Bitnami Upgrade Guide.
To upgrade ReportServer, follow these steps.
INSTALLATION DIRECTORY/apache-tomcat/webapps/reportserverIf you followed the installation tutorial this would be
TOMCAT DIRECTORY/webapps/ROOTTo check that you have the right folder confirm that this folder contains amongst others a file called ReportServer.html and a folder called ddl.
This completes the Upgrade to ReportServer 3.0.2. To ensure that installation was successful have a look at your Tomcat log files. Startup should look similar to the following

The important bit is the third to last row which indicates that the database upgrade script was successfully executed. Note that this only happens once after the upgrade and that from then on any startup would show an updated schema version, that is:
