Deploying SCCM 2012 Part 12 – Installing and Configuring Reporting Services Point.

Reporting in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager provides a set of tools and resources that help you use the advanced reporting capabilities of SQL Server Reporting Services. Reporting helps you gather, organize, and present information about users, hardware and software inventory, software updates, applications, site status, and other Configuration Manager operations in your organization. Reporting provides you with a number of predefined reports that you can use without changes, or that you can modify to meet your requirements, and you can create custom reports. Configuration Manager provides report definitions for over 400 reports in over 50 report folders, which are copied to the root report folder in SQL Server Reporting Services during the reporting services point installation process. The reports are displayed in the Configuration Manager console and organized in subfolders based on the report category. Reports are not propagated up or down the Configuration Manager hierarchy; they run only against the database of the site in which they are created. You can run Configuration Manager reports in the Configuration Manager console by using Report Viewer, or you can run reports from a browser by using Report Manager. To run reports in the Configuration Manager console, you must have the Read right for the Site permission and the permissions configured for specific objects. The user account will need Modify right for the Site permission to modify the reports.


SQL Server Reporting Services is a server-based reporting platform that provides comprehensive reporting functionality for a variety of data sources. The reporting services point in Configuration Manager communicates with SQL Server Reporting Services to copy Configuration Manager reports to a specified report folder, to configure Reporting Services settings, and to configure Reporting Services security settings. Reporting Services connects to the Configuration Manager site database to retrieve data that is returned when you run reports.

To verify if that SQL Server Reporting Services is installed and running correctly, On the desktop, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft SQL Server 2008, click Configuration Tools, and then click Reporting Services Configuration Manager.

Reporting Services Point Role : The reporting services point is a site system role that must be configured on a server with Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services installed and running. Reporting Services Point role can be installed on a central administration site and primary sites, and on multiple site systems at a site and at other sites in the hierarchy. The reporting services point is not supported on secondary sites.

To install the Reporting Services Point role, Launch the Configuration Manager Console. Under Site Configuration, click on Sites. On the right hand side right click the Site IND and click “Add Site System Roles“.

hi, we already had reporting services configured and up and running. No i added SSL to the reporting services that run on our sql server, but in configuration manager, it always tries to load the http:// . How to tell configmgr to use SSL there?
Report manager and report server Link (in Monitoring->Reporting page) give me a http:// adress. When i remove the port 80 on the reporting sever config and restart configmgr, i don’t get reports anymore, as the links are still trying to connecto 80 instead 443 :-/


I had the same issue, I re-installed SQL Reporting Services and the reporting services role. During re-installation of SSRS, I removed http in Reporting Services Configuration Manager and bound the SSL cert to port 443. Next I reinstalled the reporting services role, all the reports re-populated and no longer getting the http:// in the srsrp.log. When clicking on the reporting tab in configuration manager, the default URL is also updated to https://

Hi Prajwal,

When I am trying to connect Reporting services configuration connection to the server name it is giving me provider load failure error and instance is grayed out.
We have reporting service role enabled on this server and it was working fine earlier.

i followed your step by step guide, very thorough, so thank you. I am able to see the folders in my Reports view, before I wasn’t…however there is no reports showing. in the SRSRP.log, it shows the following: (!)

Hi i’ve been following your tutorial however when i’m now coming to add the role again under the specify reporting services role, on the verify database name its telling me that the specified database is not a configuration manager database ?? any ideas ?

Ahmad Amin

i have the same issue


I’ve Installed SCCM 2016 Current Branch with SQL Server 2017. Everything works fine except for Reporting Services Point. It Installs correctly on Both SCCM and SQL Server. All instances are fine but when i open http://server/Reports all i get is the ConfigMgr_001 and ConfigMgr_Old folders with no reports on it. After a while the component status changes to Critical.

Can you help me with this?


The Reporting Services Point Installed Successfully (It was Installed on the SQL Server). After a while it shows the following message:
The report server service is not running on Reporting Service Point server “XXX.XXX.LOCAL”; start the service to enable reporting.

I find it strange because i see SQL Server Reporting Services Running. On SCCM I get a lot of 7402 Errors and if i open SQL Server Reports Site i can see the folder “ConfigMgr_001” empty with two Connection String Files, and i also see a lot of “CongifMgr.OLD” folders and all of them are empty.


Reporting Services Point is installed with no problems, but after a while it shows a critical status. On the Alerts it shows error 7402 and that SQL Server Reporting Services isn’t started, but in fact it is.


I’m planning on reinstalling the Reporting Services in the Database Server. Could it be a WMI Issue? I don’t see sccm populating the ConfigMgr Folder.


What log should i look for? Can you help me with this issue?


I Found this on the Reporting Services Service Log:

Yes it is Installed without issues as far as i can see. I see some errors on srsrp.log on the SQL Server (It is a standalone SQL Server for this deployment). Created folder [ConfigMgr_001].

Thanks for the guide…. My SRSRP doesn’t want to install correctly. Reporting Server (SQL) is fine, both urls are browsable. On the outside, the installation seems to go well. But when you check the Reports in SCCM you see they’re not there. Then checking the Report Server (SQL) you can see the Config_XXX folder is missing. Looking at the SRSRP logs, which for some reason have decided to install on the M:\ (Why is this and hold do I select a different path?) it clearly states it’s having trouble registering srsrpserver.dll as it can’t be found in the SMS_SRSRP folder.… Read more »

Hi Prajwal Desai,

Thank you for the article, very helpful.

Can you please let me know the requirement for the service account for the reporting service, does it need to be local admin or not?


Hi Prajwal, I have installed the Reporting Services point, and first it seemed to be working fine, but now it is giving me a Critical status on the Site Status and it is giving me an error in the log I am putting a screenshot in there, can you please help me out? I am not able to receive any reports.

PavanKumar Patwari

Hi Prjawal, I had installed Reporting Services point with the help of above guidelines but i could see errors in srsrp.log (attached the screenshot) during periodic health check by the SRS Server. Could you please check and help me out here.

Any suggestion to resolve it


Thanks Prajwal.
I was able to add Reporting service point successfully. I can see the status of SMS_SRS_Reporting point is green in component status. But I don’t see the reports in SCCM console as well as Reporting manager URLs(SSRS). and I could not find srsrp.log in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs.. I’ve checked SSRS log no error there either.
is there any other way to solve this ?

John kirshy

after reporting services is up and running in sccm console and web. How do I add users to be able to access just the web site reporting portal?

Johan Pol

Hi Prajwal,
Nice article..thanks..but..
Is it possible to install the SCCM Reporting Services role on a seperate dedicated reporting server ?
Is the only requirement on that seperate server that SSRS is installed on that server and configured to point to the SCCM prrimary SQL database ?

Johan Pol

Hi thanks for your answer…is it also possible for a named instance ?

I had this same problem, because I had selected my Site Server, which didn’t have Reporting Services installed on it. I re-run, selecting the Site Database server, with SRS installed, and it worked a treat.
