Missing Microsoft system CLR Types when installing SCOM 2012 R2

One of the prerequisites for SCOM 2012 R2 is a component called Report Viewer 2012 Runtime. In previous version of SCOM, you had to install Report Viewer 2010 and that was pretty straight forward – you double click the installation file and that’s it!

With this version of Report Viewer there is a prerequisites you must install before you can install the Report Viewer and its called ‘Microaoft system CLR Types for SQL 2012″.

I’ve searched for this installation for while and finally found it in the following location on the installation CD of SQL 2012:

[SQL_Installation_Source]\1033_ENU_LP\x64\Setup\x64

In that folder you will find the installation file called:

SQLSysClrTypes.Msi

You copy the file to the intended SCOM server and install it. Once its installed, you will be able to install the Report Viewer 2012 Runtime.
