Citrix has a decent KB published around how to install and configure EdgeSight. The challenging part for me was that it assumed you had already set up SSRS, and that you were installing in a non-production environment.

I also just never felt like I had a clear idea of what was required to configure SSRS and to accomplish a setup using a least-privileged approach. This should cover pretty much everything that I felt was lacking in the installation and admin guides released for EdgeSight. Good luck with getting this up and running!
