This chapter covered the necessary planning and prerequisites for installing SQL 2000 Reporting Services and MOM 2005 Reporting. Once the reporting solution is installed and data is transferring from the OnePoint database to the SystemsCenterReporting database, you will have to grant your users access to the MOM 2005 Report Manager interface and reports. This is most easily done by granting rights at the root folder level.
Although this is the minimum amount of administrative tasks that you must perform (other than backing up the reporting solution databases as covered in Chapter 7), you will more than likely be asked to perform a long list of other tasks by your user community.
The next chapter delves into some of the more complex configurations of MOM 2005 management groups, including creating multitiered management group configurations and the tools used to connect MOM with other management frameworks. This is accomplished primarily through the MOM-to-MOM Product Connector (MMPC).
