Installing the software prerequisites on the management server for a five-server topology

Applies To: Forefront Client Security

The management server has the following prerequisites:

  • .NET Framework 2.0

  • MMC 3.0

  • GPMC with SP1

Before installing the prerequisites, verify that the server meets the hardware and operating system requirements and that you have installed all critical computer and security updates. As part of the updates, make sure that you have Windows Update Agent 2.0 or later. Windows Update Agent automatically updates itself to the latest versions when you download updates from Microsoft.

In addition, you must add the reporting server site to the Local intranet zone in Internet Explorer.

Add the reporting server site to the Local intranet zone in Internet Explorer

For SQL Server Reporting Services to function correctly, you must add the reporting server site to the Local intranet zone on the management server.

Note

Internet Explorer maintains two different lists of sites for the Local intranet zone. One list is in effect when the enhanced security configuration is enabled, and a separate list is in effect when the enhanced security configuration is disabled. When you add a Web page to the Local intranet zone, you are adding it only to the list that is currently in effect.

To add the reporting server site to the Local intranet zone

  1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  2. Click the Security tab, and then click the Local intranet zone.

  3. Click the Sites button.

  4. Click the Advanced button.

  5. In the Add this website to the zone box, type the URL of the SQL Server Reporting Services site (for example, http://*servername*).

  6. Click Add.
