  3. SQL Reporting Services Reporting – Allows you to report on Configuration Manager activity using SQL Reporting Services

  4. Client Status Reporting

  5. Unknown computer support : In Configuration Manager 2007 R2, you can deploy operating systems to computers using a PXE service point without first adding the computer to the Configuration Manager database.
