New in Novell File Reporter 2.0
New reporting capabilities and an expansive set of new reports—including permissions reports
With Novell File Reporter 2.0, we've expanded the enterprise level file reporting capabilities of Version 1 to include an advanced architecture, easier configuration and management, new reporting capabilities, advanced filtering, and new report types.
To provide the expanded reporting capabilities of today's compliance-conscious enterprises, we built Novell File Reporter 2.0 on an advanced architecture that supports:
- Simultaneous integration with eDirectory and Active Directory
- An SQL database
- Web-based administration
Easier Configuration and Management
We have replaced all the complex DSI installation and configuration tasks with a simple installation and configuration wizard that takes only minutes to run through. Once installed, you perform all management tasks through a browser-based interface.
New Reporting Capabilities
Novell File Reporter 2.0 has a much stronger tie-in to network directory services than Version 1. File Reporter 2.0 authenticates to a primary identity system (either eDirectory or Active Directory) and then through a proxy, establishes a connection to the other identity system. You can be connected to one Active Directory domain and many eDirectory trees at the same time.
For all File Data reports, you now have the option utilize Boolean filtering. This allows you to filter the eight different File Data reports to include very specific information according to the multiple Boolean conditions that you set.
In addition to the extensive file report types in Version 1, Novell File Reporter 2.0 introduces:
- Permissions reports that identify who has access to a particular file or the access rights of a particular user
- Trending reports that show the growth of data on a Novell volume or Windows share over a period of time
- Detail reports that are specific to an individual user, file type, file, and more
- Aggregate reports that report on file and folders located on storage resources in eDirectory and Active Directory
