Configure Storage Reports

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can configure the default parameters for storage reports. These default parameters are used for the incident reports that are generated when a quota or file screening event occurs. They are also used for scheduled and on-demand reports, and you can override the default parameters when you define the specific properties of these reports.


When you change the default parameters for a type of report, changes affect all incident reports and any existing scheduled report tasks that use the defaults.

To configure the default parameters for storage reports

  1. In the console tree, right-click File Server Resource Manager, and then click Configure Options. The File Server Resource Manager Options dialog box opens.

  2. On the Storage Reports tab, under Configure default parameters, select the type of report that you want to modify.

  3. Click Edit Parameters.

  4. Depending on the type of report that you select, different report parameters will be available for editing. Perform all necessary modifications, and then click OK to save them as the default parameters for that type of report.

  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each type of report that you want to edit.

    To see a list of the default parameters for all reports, click Review Reports. Then click Close.

  6. Click OK.
