How to Install the Reporting Point and Reporting Services Point System Roles in SCCM 2007

By Garth Jones

To help answer a question posted in the Microsoft forums about how to install the reporting point and the reporting services point system roles in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (CM07) I thought that I would put together a quick video and post part of our CM07 build guide. We often refer to this guide when building a CM07 site server from start to finish. To answer the question before anyone asks, yes we have a build guide for CM12 too; it is currently sitting at 200 pages! The video appears at the end of these step-by-step instructions.

Getting started I will assume that you have SSRS and the appropriate IIS setting already configured.

Reporting Point and Reporting Services Point - CM07 Console 

First, within the CM07 console, expand Site Database, then Site Management, <server name> and finally Site Settings. Now expand Site Systems and highlight and click the primary server name.

From the Actions pane, choose New Roles.

Reporting Point and Reporting Services Point - General

Ensure that the FQDN is entered and click Next >.
