Reports in Configuration Manager 2007 are opened in Report Viewer, which can be opened from the Configuration Manager console or by using a Web browser. Reports can be opened from any computer that has access to a reporting point for the site and for users that have sufficient rights to view the reports. For more information about the security rights needed to view reports, see Reporting Security Best Practices.
Use the following procedures to open a report from the Configuration Manager console and from a Web browser.
To run a report from the Configuration Manager console
In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Reporting / Reports.
Right-click the name of the report that you want to run, and then click Run. The report will either open within the Configuration Manager console or be displayed in a Web browser window. For information about configuring how the report displays when opened from the Configuration Manager Console, see How to Configure Report Options for a Site.
To run a report from a Web browser
Open a Web browser, enter the URL for the report, and then press Enter. The default URL for a report is http://reporting point name/SMSReporting_site code/Report.asp?ReportId=ReportID.
Alternatively, you can go to Report Viewer, select the report from the list, and then click Display. The default URL for the reporting point is http://servername/SMSReporting_site code.
