System Center Essentials 2010 (SCE) relies on SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to show what’s going on with your infrastructure. As I mentioned in part 1, you need to either set this up at install time or point to an existing installation of SSRS. Once you have done that the reports you get will depend on which management packs you installed and whether you elected to setup SCE to manage virtual machines. I have made a short screencast introducing reporting in SCE here.
Other things to note, if the screencasts aren’t your thing:
This is the last in the series on SCE, and if you now want to try any of the stuff I have shown you over the last few weeks it’s included in the TechNet Subscriptions here or you can get a time bombed trial version here.
