Hello. I am currently working on a project for SCCM 2012. In the past, all reporting was done against the SCCM server itself. With SCCM 2012, I would like to copy the data to another server regularly so that reports could be run against it. I have some experience with this but not a great deal. What is the best way to do this? Would I restore the SCCM database to the archive server and setup some kind of replication job that runs regularly?

Thank you for any information.

What version of SQL Server are you using?
I would recommend looking into Mirroring if it is available to you.

If your reporting is going to be drawing on data from most of the tables in the database then I would consider using a 'whole database' solution like log-shipping with standby which is relatively easy to configure and manage and is a nice robust solution.

If your only looking at a small subset of tables then replication begins to make more sense, despit being slightly more complex to implement and maintain.

If it's data change quantity is not large then Snap shot replication is the good option for you.

Mirroring may eat your performance.
