Inventory - Distribution Group Membership

Prerequisite

To store and report on membership details, ensure the Distribution Group Membership option is enabled in the Organization Properties. See the chapter titled “Setting Exchange Organization Properties” in the MessageStats Administrator Guide.

This report provides a list of the members and other mail-enabled objects within each distribution group. Other mail-enabled objects can include nested distribution groups.

For each distribution group, MessageStats gathers the name of the mailboxes, distribution groups, and other Exchange-enabled objects that are directly part of each distribution group. For each distribution group, the report lists the members, member SMTP address, and member type.

If MessageStats encounters a mail-enabled object (including mail contacts, public folders, or distribution groups) and cannot determine the object type, the object is recorded as a mailbox by default. If MessageStats later correctly determines that the object is not a mailbox, the MessageStats database is updated to reflect that all statistics are attributed to the correct object type.

Migration Reports

About the Migration Reports

When you are planning to migrate to a newer version of Exchange, or from a different messaging platform to Exchange, you can use the migration reports to assess the progress of your mailbox migration.

Many of these reports can also be found under other nodes in the reports tree. The reports that are useful for pre-migration assessment, migration management, and post-migration analysis are grouped under the Migration node for your convenience.

Inventory Reports

As part of pre-migration planning, use the inventory reports to determine the scope of the migration from the source platform. During and after migration, use the inventory reports to evaluate whether the migration to the target Exchange organization is complete.

The following reports are found in the Inventory folder:

Exchange Inventory Summary

Use this report as an inventory overview of your existing Exchange organizations. The report shows the number of servers, primary and archive mailboxes, private and public folder databases, distribution groups, and public folders in each organization.

To drill down to the inventory details for each object, click a result.

Exchange Inventory Servers

When analyzing your existing environment, use this report to view each Exchange server in each organization. The report includes the Exchange version for each server, and shows the number of primary and archive mailboxes, public folder and mailbox databases, and public folders.

Exchange Mailbox Delegates

This report helps you to monitor access to the target mailboxes by source accounts. It lists mailboxes that have at least one delegate assigned to them and shows all the accounts that have delegate access to each mailbox.

Exchange Public Folders

In preparation for migrating public folders, you can use this report to identify and find all existing public folders in your organization.

You can easily identify the servers on which the public folders reside and find all the subfolders contained in each public folder.

Exchange ActiveSync Device Inventory

When assessing your existing mobile device users, use this report to see the mobile devices, such as Android, Apple iPhone and iPad, which are used with Exchange ActiveSync within your environment. Each mobile device is listed along user information. If a mobile device has been used by multiple users, it is listed only once with its most recent user.

Lync Enabled Users

When migrating to a newer version of Exchange, use this report to identify the users that are enabled for Lync and to ensure that their Lync configuration settings are migrated correctly.

Lotus Notes Mailbox Delegates

If you are migrating from Lotus Notes, use this report to determine which accounts may require access to the target mailboxes. This report shows the Lotus Notes mailboxes to which additional users are granted access as delegates.

Lotus Notes Mailbox Security

If you are migrating from Lotus Notes, use this report to determine the security required for the target mailboxes. This report shows security details about the access control list (ACL) for each Lotus Notes mailbox, including level of access and the specific rights that each trustee (user or group) has to the mail file.
