Before client status reporting can store data in the Configuration Manager 2007 R2 site database, you must configure the appropriate permissions to give the client status reporting service account access to the Microsoft SQL Server database.

Use the following procedure to give the client status reporting service account access rights to the Configuration Manager 2007 site database.

Note
If client status reporting is installed on the computer that hosts the Configuration Manager 2007 site database and the client status reporting service account has administrator permissions to the computer, you do not need to manually configure permissions to the site database.
