  • Blog Post: SMS2003 - How to easily create reports - For reporting first-timers and the like

    I was pondering (like you do) how accessible report creation is in SMS2003. It requires a few skills to be under-your-belt (SQL, SQL tools, areas in SMS) before you can master this subject enough to produce quality reports. And, well I was taught (back when I was a padawan, I eventually killed my...
  • Blog Post: Reporting Error: Value of '1/1/0001 00:00:00' is not valid for 'Value'

    If trying to run a report but receiving a Cannot Execute Report error as below, the first thing you probably would think of checking is your regional settings and making sure you have the same date/time format as the reporting server. And, this may well solve the issue, however, it may also not. A less...
  • Blog Post: Reporting: Add Object... or Add Group...

    When opening a report you are presented with two options to add objects to the report parameters, they are to 'Add Object...' or 'Add Group...'. And, it seems to be quite common thinking that it doesn't matter which option you pick, which I can understand as the same objects or groups...
  • Blog Post: Execution of the ASP page caused the Response Buffer to exceed its configured limit

    I was creating some web reports for a remote site today when I came across an old problem Response object error ' ASP 0251 : 80004005' Response Buffer Limit Exceeded /smsreporting/Report.asp, line 0 Execution of the ASP page caused the Response Buffer to exceed its configured limit. This...
  • Blog Post: Rebranding Service Manager 2010 Reports

    I’ve posted before on rebranding reports for Operations Manager and Data Protection Manager, so I thought I would continue the trend and post on how to rebrand reports in the Service Manager.  As the reports in Service Manager are based on SQL Reporting Services it is just as simple to rebrand them...
  • Blog Post: Moniitor your ConfigMgr\SMS2003 Backups via a report

    Essentially I wanted to know what sites haven't backed up within a given date range (a day and a half since last backup), and those that have never backed up (never reported a backup). Groovy stuff, not so easy to determine though, or so it would seem, unless you fall back entirely onto the Status...
  • Blog Post: ConfigMgr 2007 - SQL 2008 - Reporting made easy by John Marcum

    John Marcum MVP wrote an awesome beginners guide to generating ConfigMgr 2007 reports using SQL 2008. Well, I did something like this a while back, and the only reason I bring it up, is not to steal some of Mr Marcums thunder, but because I wrote it for SMS2003 using SQL 2000! http://wmug.co.uk...

  • Blog Post: SCOM Reports–Changing the Default Banner

    On my old blogging site ( www.aquilaweb.com ) I had an article about how to change the default banner on reports in SCOM. Unfortunately my old website content got “lost” by the provider at the time, and I lost all the content on the site. Since then, I have had a number of requests about a particular...
