You have a large number of cores for which you need to generate an At-A-Glance report. Although you can enumerate cores in the At-A-Glance unified reporting script command line, you have too many cores to be able to use this avenue. Moreover, not all the cores can be accessed using the same credentials. You want a solution for this problem.
This KB needs to be used in conjunction with https://support.quest.com/appassure/kb/148172 -- Unified At-A-Glance Report (User Guide and Script)
Please note that in order to be successful, the core names need to be resolvable, that routes need to be available for the cores IP addresses and port 8006 needs to be open.
The -corenames parameter for the At-A-Glance unified reporting script can take three types of values:
1. The name (or IP Address) of one core (i.e. PS C:\Users\JohnDoe\Documents> .\CondensedEvents.unified.3.x.ps1 -corenames AppAssureCore1)
2. The name (or IP Address) of several cores separated by comas (no spaces between the comas and the core names), for instance PS C:\Users\JohnDoe\Documents> .\CondensedEvents.unified.3.x.ps1 -corenames AppAssureCore1,10.23.20.192,TargetCore2
This Kb discusses the third case.
Please note that although the file containing the core information is following a CSV format, its name can have any extension. For instance, provided that the internal format is respected, the input cores files can be called cores.csv or cores.txt or cores.old This way you may have different versions of the cores input files with the same name but with various extension. For instance, if you monitor a large environment and want to run different reports each day of the week you can have mycores.mon, mycores.tue,mycores.wed etc.
The result is that notepad is opened and the file header (the column names) is automatically sent to the clipboard and then pasted into notepad. If for some reason the header is not pasted automatically, please select the opened notepad instance, right click and choose paste (the header is already pasted in the clipboard)
Next step is adding the core names one per line. If different usernames and cores are to be used for severla cores or if you want to run the script with less parameters (that is without -username and -password), add the username and encoded password (as described in https://support.quest.com/appassure/kb/148219) separated with comas (no spaces).
Please note that the cores without usernamess and passwords will take these values from the arguments of -username and -password parameter.
The command line to run the "create cores file" option is
PS C:\Users\JohnDoe\Documents> .\CondensedEvents.unified.3.x.ps1 -createcorefile
