Run the Discoveries to Collect the Data

You can schedule discoveries or run them on demand. In this case, we want to collect this data right away. Each discovery is broken down into tasks, which are assigned to the node for processing. If you have more than one node, Enterprise Reporter uses load balancing to ensure the most efficient processing. You can track the progress of your discovery.

On the Manage Discoveries page, select the discovery File Storage Analysis - [Server Name].
Click Run.
To view the progress of a discovery, click the Processing link in the Next Run column.

Run the Reports You Need

Once the discovery information is collected, you can run reports against it. When you run a report, it returns data based on the most recent data collected by the discoveries, the selected fields, and any parameter values you enter. Some reports may have required parameters; in this case, the report will not run unless you enter valid parameter values.

To produce the requested information, you must run a File Storage Analysis report in Enterprise Reporter. The Files and Folders report contains the following sections:

You can drill down from this report to more detailed reports for each specific section within this report. The following example illustrates this process starting with the Against Policy File Category.

Click any server name and the FSA - Files by Category report is displayed showing the number of files, size, and size on disk for the Against Policy category on that server.
Click the Against Policy category link and the FSA - File Category Details report is displayed showing the 10 file types that are using the most space.
Scroll down to the corresponding table and click on any file extension link (such as JPG) and the NTFS - File Information by Extension report is displayed showing all files with this extension on the selected computers.

You can repeat this process starting with the File Storage Analysis Files and Folders report. You can drill down through the various sections of the report to identify files that are duplicate, unused, orphaned or that violate storage usage policy.

Office 365 and Azure Reporting

If you are required to administer your Office 365 environments, including subscriptions and licenses, Enterprise Reporter can be of assistance by automatically gathering information and reporting on it.

Each week you need a report that shows an overview of your Office 365 tenant. You are going to use three reports to monitor this: one report for an overview of Office 365, one report for tenant settings, and one report for Azure subscription information. You will automate the delivery of the weekly reports to ensure they are always received.

You will need to take the following steps:

Setup Enterprise Reporter Azure Applications for Office 365 Discoveries

To collect from your Office 365 tenant you must configure Enterprise Reporter Tenant applications using the Tenant Application Manager.

On the System | Configuration page of the Configuration Manager, select Manage tenant applications.
Click Add, enter the name of your Office 365 tenant and click OK.
To configure each application, click the Configure link in the Application Status column.
Click Close.
