Creating configuration reports

System Administrator Guide for Virtual Storage Platform E Series

Part Number

You can create and store up to 20 configuration reports for each storage system. There are two types of reports:

  • Configuration Reports, which are generated in HTML format
  • Detail Configuration Reports, which are generated in CSV format
  • You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to create a configuration report.
  • Verify that there are less than 20 reports listed on the Reports window. If there are already 20 reports, you must delete one or more existing reports before you can create a new report.
  1. If CCI has been used to create parity groups or LDEVs, click File > Refresh All to update the configuration information before creating a configuration report.
  2. In the Device Manager - Storage Navigator main menu, click Reports > Configuration Report > Create Configuration Report.
  3. In the Create Configuration Report window, specify a task name or accept the default task name (yymmdd-CreateConfigurationReport).
    This task name is used as the report name in the Reports window.
  4. In the Selected Reports table, select the desired report type: Configuration Reports (HTML) or Detail Configuration Reports (CSV).
  5. If you want the Tasks window to open after you click Apply, select Go to tasks window for status (selected by default).
  6. Click Apply to create the selected report.
    The create configuration report process takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

    When the process is complete, the new report is displayed on the Reports window. If necessary, click Refresh to update the list of reports.
