Enterprise Reporter 3.2 - Quick Start Guide

Introducing Quest® Enterprise Reporter Key Features of Enterprise Reporter Enterprise Reporter Components System Requirements An Overview of Enterprise Reporter Communications and Credentials Required Installing Enterprise Reporter Step-By-Step Walkthroughs

Create Your First Enterprise Reporter Cluster and Node

The Configuration Manager contains a wizard that walks you through the process of creating clusters and nodes. You can create a cluster without a node, and add the nodes later, but you will not be able to run a discovery without an enabled node.

Select No network share specified.
Click Next.
If the account you want is not on the list, click Add, enter the account, and select it from the list.
To use SQL credentials to connect to the database, select Database Credential, choose SQL Authentication, and select the SQL account from the Credential Manager.
Click Add.
Click Finish.

The new node appears on the Discovery Nodes tab. Your node will be enabled, unless you cleared the Enable the nodes check box.

For a listing of possible node statuses, see What does the status of a node or cluster indicate? in the Quest Enterprise Reporter Configuration Manager User Guide in the Technical Documentation. 


For more information, see Enabling a Cluster in the Quest Enterprise Reporter Configuration Manager User Guide in the Technical Documentation. 


Step-By-Step Walkthroughs

Enterprise Reporter is a very flexible reporting tool, that can be used for many different purposes. This section uses examples of common uses to highlight how to set up Enterprise Reporter to maximize its potential.

Pre- and Post-Migration Assessment — Assess your network environment before migrating to identify any issues, and re-assess once the migration is complete to ensure that everything went as planned.
Manage Compliance — Set up reports to automatically generate and be delivered, minimizing the time you have to spend demonstrating compliance.
Change History Reporting — Track changes in your network environment using Change History Reporting. You can monitor changes to hardware, SQL databases, files, folders and so on.
File Storage Consolidation — Prepare for storage migration by identifying and excluding from migration files that are unused, orphaned, or are in violation of your storage usage policy.
Office 365 and Azure Reporting - Assess your Office 365 and Azure usage and configuration.

This walkthrough will guide you through each of these use cases for Enterprise Reporter. Each scenario shows you how to leverage Enterprise Reporter to get the information you want when you need it.

Pre- and Post-Migration Assessment

Before you migrate computers and users to a new environment, you should assess their current state. Using reports generated by Enterprise Reporter, you can ensure that everything is ready to be migrated. Once the migration is complete, you can re-assess to ensure your environment is as you expect, and identify any issues that need resolving.

You have received a request to identify all users, groups, and group memberships for a particular domain, and to provide it in Excel format for tracking purposes. This same report will be required after migrating all users to a new domain.

You will need to take the following steps:

Configure a Cluster to Perform the Data Discovery

You must configure at least one cluster. A cluster is a logical collection of one or more computers (nodes) on which discoveries are executed. A discovery must be assigned to a cluster. A cluster can access an optional shared data location for discovery data. This reduces network traffic, and the processing load on the server.

Clusters are created in the Configuration Manager. To ensure you have the necessary access to the consoles and reports, make sure you are still logged in to your computer with the same user account that you used to install Enterprise Reporter.

If you do not have the Configuration Manager open, perform the following steps:

Click the Start menu and select All Programs | Quest | Enterprise Reporter | Configuration Manager.
Click Browse, and locate the computer where the server is installed.
Click Connect.

The Create Cluster wizard walks you through the process of setting up a cluster. If you want to create a new Cluster, see To create your first cluster and node .
