Failing over SSRS reports in clusters

Current have a failover cluster environment active-active. There is reporting services installed and configured on one of the nodess. However during a failover process, the reportserver does not failover. I am aware that SSRS is not cluster aware. Is there anyway i can get reporting services to failover during the failover process?

As you have mentioned, SSRS are not ClusterAware. What you can do, is to install two instances of the SSRS in Scale-out deployment - one instance on each cluster node.

The use a load balancer which will route the incoming requests to appropriate node. (the load balancer will have to detect which node has failed and which is running).
