i have question here i have SCCM which is obviously a 32 bit and have installed it on 64bit computer of widnows 2008 successfully installed configured now i have a major problem here i have enabled push client installation on servers and clients right now i have 200 Windows 2008 servers 64 bit when ever sccm push its client to those servers i find the following
i find CCMSETUP folder on c:\windows (usuallay on 32bit i find CCMSETUP on system32 folder)
i find CCM folder in C:\windows\syswow32 (usuall on 32bit i find it on system32 folder)
when i go to control panel there is no configuration manager Icon no other SCCM icons are availabe.
i thought might be the problem is with push installation but i have installed manually again the same problem but ccmsetup.log shows installation is successfull there is no error nothing even computers in collection are approved every thing looks fine but i dont see any thing in control panel. Installation on 32 bit computers like XP is fine but i have not tried 32bit windows 2008 and i dont have any please help me out guys plz
Benefits of using SQL Reporting Services
SQL Reporting Services provides tremendous flexibility in terms of monitoring report execution performance, tuning report execution parameters and a boat load of value add functionality like:
Ability to export reports to any other formats like Word, Excel, PDF etc.
- Ability to create report subscriptions that can be scheduled to run at specific times and send out reports to interested people. A good user scenario around this would be to create a report subscription for the Software Updates reports and schedule them to run late on Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning after all the "patch Tuesday" updates are applied to all systems.
- Report authoring experience is very much enhanced with the tools that come with SQL Reporting Services like SQL Report Designer. You could either create report models or create SQL-based reports and run them off of the SQL Reporting Server.
- Timeouts can be configured on a per-report basis depending on which reports potentially return large amounts of data.
- Since the reports are standard SQL Reporting Services reports, they can be easily imported and exported from one SQL Reporting server to another.
- A common request from customers is to be able to run reports off of a Configuration Manager database replica before enabling them on the production environment. This is a gem of a functionality that can be easily accomplished by simply making the data source for the reports point to any valid Configuration Manager database; in this case point the data source of the reports to the database replica and once they have been verified just change the data source to point to the actual production database. This proves to be very useful for benchmarking environments.
- Report branding is another frequently requested functionality by many customers. This commonly entails customizing the look and feel of reports by changing fonts, font sizes, custom logos etc. With the ability to create custom reports using SQL Reporting Services, customers can now apply their own report branding to the reports.
- SQL Reporting Services provides the functionality to enable report caching to facilitate lower execution times on subsequent report execution requests. The cache timeout value can be configured appropriately depending on how often you expect the report data to change.
- Report snapshots that are an alternative to report caching and can be scheduled to execute at specific times. When you select a report snapshot for viewing, the report server retrieves the stored report from the report server database, and shows the data and layout that were current for the report at the time the snapshot was created.
