This blog post applies to both SCCM 2012 R2 , SCCM 1511 and later.

In this part of SCCM 2012 and SCCM 1511 blog series, we will describe how to install a SCCM 2012 or SCCM 1511 reporting services point.

This role can be installed on a remote machine, the process is the same but the logs location is different.

Requirements

Before you can install the reporting services point role you must configure SQL correctly.

We’ll be using SQL 2012 on this post. We are assuming that SQL is already installed and that your SCCM site is up and healthy.

During the initial SQL installation, you must select Reporting Services.

If you have installed SQL Server, but have not installed Reporting Services follow the following steps. If Reporting Services is already installed, skip to the “Configure Reporting Services” section.

  • Launch the SQL Server 2012 installation from the media.
  • Click the Installation link on the left to view the Installation options.
  • Click the top link, New SQL Server stand-alone installation or add features to an existing installation.

  • Follow the SQL Server Setup wizard until you get to the Installation Type screen.
  • Select Add features to an existing instance of SQL Server 2012.
  • Click Next to move to the Feature Selection page.

  • Select Install Only

Continue through the wizard and reboot the computer at the end of the installation if instructed to do so.

Configure Reporting Services

Before configuring the reporting point, some configuration needs to be made on the SQL side. The virtual instance needs to be created for SCCM to connect and store its reports.

If you installed Reporting Services during the installation of the SQL Server instance, SSRS will be configured automatically for you. If you install SSRS later, then you will have to go back and configure it as a subsequent step.

To configure, Open Reporting Services Configuration Manager

  • Click Start > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2012 > Configuration Tools > Reporting Services Configuration Manager

  • Click Connect to connect to the SQL instance

  • Click the Change Database button

  • Select Create a new report server database and click Next

This wizard creates two databases: ReportServer, used to store report definitions and security, and ReportServerTempDB which is used as scratch space when preparing reports.

  • Click the Web Service URL tab
  • Click Apply

This step sets up the SSRS web service. The web service is the program that runs in the background that communicates between the web page, which you will set up next, and the databases.

  • Select the Report Manager URL
  • Accept the default settings and click Apply.

If the Apply button was already grayed out, this means the SSRS was already configured. This step sets up the Report Manager web site where you will publish reports

Exit Reporting Service Configuration Manager.

  • Navigate to Administration/Site/Configuration/Servers and site System Roles
  • Right click on your Site Server and click Add system Roles

Recovery Model
Using the simple recovery model improves performance and saves your server hard drive and possibly large transaction log file.

To change the Recovery Model of the ReportingDB to Simple

  • Open SQL Management Studio
  • Right click on the ReportServer database and select Properties
  • Go to the Options page
  • Under Recovery model select Simple
  • Click OK

Log
Check for the following logs for reporting point installation status. Both logs are under the SCCM logs file locations.

  • Srspsetup.log
  • Srsrpmsi.log

If your reporting point is installed on a remote server look for the logs in :

Drive:\SMS\Logs\

Console

Open Monitor/Reporting/Reports node. Verify that your reports are listed

Web Browser

Open Internet Explorer, navigate to http://yourservername/Reports

If everything went well, you’ll have a folder Config_SiteCode containing your reports

SQL

  • Open SQL Management Studio
  • Locate ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB

  1. Dudes, In SRS installation section, your “Install Only” screenshot shows installing in Sharepoint Integrated mode… I think you want to show the middle option, no?

  2. Hello,

    Thanks for the information above. I have a quick question about the reporting services point role. Can it only be installed on a site that has SSRS installed? ie. If I have SSRS on different server (SQL) can I have the reporting services point on my primary site, and just point to the SSRS instance on the other server?

  3. Hallo Nick
    my Reporting Server was working. I’m now receiving error 500 with access denied. It seems that .Net Framework 4 update issue. How ca I fix it?
    Thanks a lot

  5. Hello,
    I am struggling in SCCM 2012 Reporting,
    Just two days ago , our reporting service was working and now whole contents from web console as well as actual console is missing, I do not know what happened,

    when I look at properties for Reporting Service Point — Database is CM_XXX, is it supposed to be that or SCCMReport?

    in Reporting Service Configuration — Database is connect to SCCMREPORT, I am so confused with this one,

    Can you help?

    PD

    1. Hi Dave,

      Reporting Service Point – Database is the SCCM database connection. Normally, it is CM_XXX.

      Reporting Service Configuration – Database is the reporting service database. In your case is SCCMReport. By default, it is ReportServer.

      SCCM database is used to execute report. SSRS database is used to see statistics, inventory, subscription of your reporting services.

      Thanks
      Nick
