Database setup during configuration:

Hi,

Can we create an empty database and then use it while configuration of report server for first time?

What I mean is, instead of selecting create new database while configuration, can I select use existing report server database and then select an empty database that is created prior to this?

We are using different servers for report server and database.

Thanks
Manalla

you can create a new DB or use existing DB as you configure the PBI RS. see the link below for more detail.

I cannot create a new database using configuration manager. I am trying to find an alternative for setting up database first and then point to. In our org we don’t have existing report server or power bi database.
