Just how much effort is needed to move an RS 2008 R2 report from one server to another? Can anyone give me some tips please?

I haven't touched SSRS In a while, but can't you export it to an rdl file and then import it? You would use Report Server for that.

you have different options
1. if you've direct access to report server you can export rdl from server as Tara suggested and import it to new server
2. If you want to do it programatically you can use rs utility to do it
3. Another method is to use Reporting Services Migration Tool
