A reporting point in Configuration Manager 2007 is a site server role that hosts files used by Configuration Manager to display database information in Report Viewer. Use the following procedure to create a reporting point on a site system computer.

To create a reporting point

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.

  2. Determine whether to create a new site system or modify an existing site system, and then follow the associated step.

    To create a new site system and add the reporting point role:

    • Right-click Site Systems, click New, and then click Server.

    To add the reporting point role to an existing site system:

    • Right-click the site system name, and then click New Roles.
  3. Configure the general site system settings, and then click Next.

  4. Select Reporting point, and then click Next.

  5. Specify the Report folder for the reporting point. Configuration Manager creates a folder with the specified name under \Inetpub\wwwroot. The default folder name is SMSReporting_sitecode.

  6. Specify whether the Configuration Manager console opens the Report Viewer Web page using hypertext transfer protocol (http) or secure hypertext transfer protocol (https), and what port number is used. The default port for http is 80, and the default port for https is 443.

  7. Click Next, and then click Close to exit the wizard.
