Please forgive me that I am not a SQL guy, so the questions may be silly.
If my memory serves right, SQL Server 2000 disc contains client tools so that you can do query, etc. from a workstation.
On SQL Server 2008 R2 disc, I do not see the client tools any more. Where should I get them?

Thanks!
Jack

Here is the link to it, now it is called Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Management Studio Express  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7593

Thanks!!
I also found "Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Express" which can be downloaded from the following URL
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43351

Is it a good idea to download 2012 instead of 2008? Is it compatible with SQL Server 2008 R2?

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

the express editions wont show the sql server agent components. other than that, you can connect to SQL 2008 from a 2012 SSRS.
I would still suggest, you click on install and just choose the ssms components

Basically, up to you.. 2012 will work with 2008 since the core is almost same (2012 has some improvements) so for you it will be ok...
