Report issues after moving the RMS

If you’ve had the "opportunity" to move your Root Management Server (which Cameron describes at!A231E4EB0417CB76!908.entry), there are other components you will need to update as well. This includes the Reporting Server and Web Console Server, which will need to know the new location of your RMS.

  • Change the rsreportserver.config file on the Reporting Server. There are two entries there for <ServerName>; change them to point to the new RMS name.
  • On the Web Console Server, modify the web.config file where it says <add key = "MOMServer" value=‘FQDN name of RMS"> to reference the FQDN name of your new RMS.
  • On the registry of the reporting server, change the value of  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Reporting for the DefaultSDKServiceMachine to the new RMS.

The steps to update the files as well as the entire process to move the RMS are discussed in our book. System Center Operations Manager 2007 Unleashed, which is being released this week, discusses additional issues in the RTM version when moving the RMS. You can also check out
