managedRAS and unmanagedRAS

Hi i am using Crystal report server 2008 embedded SP 3.

What is the difference between managed and unmanaged RAS. I am using Crystal report server 2008 embedded SP 3 to do server side reporting. I have a .NET desktop application that speaks to a WCF service on the sever, the wcf service does the processing for the report. What i want to know is should my service be using managed RAS or Unmanaged RAS.

NB: The report uses XML and XSD datasource.

Thanks in advance.

Managed RAS is where the reports are stored in Enterprise/CR Server and managed by that system and its security model.

Unmanaged RAS is where the reports are stored in a folder on the server and accessed directly without going through Enterprise's security model (therefore unmanaged).

You can use either, it is really up to you which you go with.
