Reporting Services tab not showing in SCCM console after R3 upgrade? Here’s how to fix it.

Recently I have upgraded my SCCM central server which was running 2007 SP2 to 2007 R3 and encountered interesting issue. Basically after all reports have been imported I couldn’t see Reporting Services tab in my console to take advantage of any pre-defined reports showing power consumption etc. Currently my console looks as follows:

Reporting_Services_tab_not_showing_in_SCCM_console_after_R3_upgrade_Here_is_how_to_fix_it_1

where the same console on my central server has the tab I’m missing which its showing up just fine:

Reporting_Services_tab_not_showing_in_SCCM_console_after_R3_upgrade_Here_is_how_to_fix_it_2

Solution to get this problem fixed is to install hotfix from Microsoft which happens to be a pre-requisite before you install R3 on your client computer with SCCM console. Link:

If you’re after the actual .msi ready to be installed you can get it from here (downloading hotfixes from Microsoft can be a bit of pain sometimes):

SCCM2007-SP2-KB977384-ENU

…at this point you should be all set to install the R3 upgrade to your console which will bring the Reporting Services tab.
