Hi,
I wish to install SCOM to monitor my sql server 2008 databases.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/system-center/operations-manager-overview.aspx

1. Do I need SQL database to install SCOM?
2. Is there an agent which I need to deploy at each SQL server database?
3. How to configure reports

Thanks

1. Yes, you need a management server, two databases for SCOM if you wish to use reporting - the Operational Database and the Data Warehouse Database, and a dedicated  sql reporting server (i.e. reporting services not used for anything else) to run SCOM with reporting functionality. All of these roles may exist on the same system but I would review the design guide before planning your configuration.

2. You install one agent on each physical SQL server.  

3. The reports are installed as part of management pack installation (automatically deployed) as long as the pre-requisite Data Warehouse and Reporting Server components are already installed.

Perhaps take a look at the information on SCOM 2007R2 available on technet library which will walk you designing a SCOM installation and installing it here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd789005.aspx 

To monitor SQL server and databases you would need to install the SQL management pack.  There is a comprehensive installation guide that ships with the management pack and steps you through getting it working. The technet version of the same documentation is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd767418.aspx

I hope this helps you on your journey.
