Use the following procedure to enable reporting in Virtual Machine Manager after you deploy System Center Operations Manager 2007 SP1 or System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, set up your reporting server, and import the System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 Management Pack and the System Center Virtualization Reports 2008 R2 Management Pack. Until you perform this procedure, Reporting view does not display in the VMM Administrator Console.

To view and open reports in Reporting view, you also must be added to the Report Operators role in Operations Manager. For an end-to-end procedure for setting up reporting, see Setting Up Reporting in VMM.
