If you have Configuration Manager 2012 and you are using SQL Reporting, you may want to create some custom reports. In your Configuration Manager 2012 Console, you can browse to Monitoring, then into the Reporting module. This will display all the reports that are currently available to you. If you want to create a custom report, you can click on the Create Report button on the ribbon:
However, you may find that when you do this, you get the following error pop up:
The Report Builder click once application does not exist on the report server “your-report-server”. Ensure that the report builder application manifest exist on the server and try again
The reason for this is that there is a registry key that needs to be updated to version 3 as when the CM2012 console is installed, it puts in the version 2 key and the report builder will not work.
To make this fix as simple as possible, we have created an MSI installer that will make the changes required and then allow you to create custom reports from the CM2012 Console. As it is an MSI file, you can also add it to your Software Catalog to distribute to other should this be required.
