"Microsoft" -and "Licensing" -eq "Pain"

This is new to me...

Apparently, you can't use Reporting Services to connect to an incorrectly matched SQL Database SKU:

If you try to, you get this lovely exception in SSRS:

The interesting thing is I got this exception trying to setup a SQL Express Reporting Service data source connecting to a Developer edition of the database server. I thought Express was free so why would they put restrictions on what database server it connects to?

Ahh well...time to install SSRS Developer edition I guess :-)
