After installing Reporting Services for Mobile Management for Configuration Manager 2007, you attempt to run one of the reports and receive an error.

An error occurred when the report was run. The details are as follows:
Linked servers cannot be used under impersonation without a mapping for the impersonated login.
Error Number: -2147217900

  5. Click "OK".
  6. Select "Server Objects", select "Linked Servers".
  7. Right-click "SMMLinkedServer" and select "Properties".
