Setting Configuration Manager Web Reports and R2 Reporting Services Display Options

Here you will find the steps necessary to set or configure ConfigMgr 2007 Web Reports or ConfigMgr 2007 R2 Reporting options to open the selected reports within the console or with Internet Explorer.

  1. Open the Configuration Manager console "System Center Configuration Manager"
  2. Right mouse click on your "Site Database (Site_Code – Server_Name, Description) and from the context menu select "Report Options"
  3. Then select “Open reports in a new window”


Note: This configuration change is console specific meaning that if you make the change on the site server it will not be set on your workstation console. Simply follow the same steps above provided you upgraded your workstation console to ConfigMgr 2007 R2 to open the reports in Internet Explorer.

Tip: From the Report Options dialog box you can also find the ConfigMgr Web Reports web page link (URL) and copy and pasted the link into your Internet browser to access the reports from IE. You can also see the Report Server NetBIOS name as well as set options to “Use Reporting Services Reports for Admin console report links”.

For additional information select “Help” on the “Report Options” dialog box.
