FIM 2010 R2 Reporting Software Requirements

The FIM Reporting service in FIM 2010 R2 uses the following components (in addition to the basic FIM 2010 R2 deployment):

  • FIM 2010 R2 Reporting service - The Reporting service appears as an optional component during the FIM Service and Portal installation, and can be installed at the same time as other FIM components or can be installed at a later time.

  • System Center Service Manager (SCSM) – The FIM Reporting service gathers data from the FIM database, and pushes it to SCSM, where it is configured for storage. SCSM uses pre-defined management packs, which are automatically deployed during the FIM Reporting service installation, to transform the data based on the default FIM schema. A FIM Reporting deployment uses these SCSM components:

    • Data Warehouse – This component of SCSM is used for long-term data storage, and to provide data for reports.

    • Management Server – This component of SCSM is used to stage data from FIM before it arrives into the Data Warehouse for long term storage.

    • SCSM Service Manager Console – The Service Manager Console is installed on the machine running the FIM Reporting service, and is used to view or query the data on the Data Warehouse.

  • SQL Server Reporting Service (SSRS) – The SQL Server Reporting Service can be used to generate and display custom reports in a variety of formats.

The servers that host Microsoft® Forefront® Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 R2 Reporting components must meet the following minimum software requirements for System Center Service Manager 2010 SP1. The following table outlines the software requirements for the individual parts of Service Manager.
