We have released a new (and FREE!) report pack for Veeam Reporter, the Get to Know Veeam Reporter pack. Veeam Reporter allows report packs to be added to the installation as they become available. A good example of this is the Capacity Planning reporter pack, which was included with 4.0.1 release.
The Get to Know Veeam Reporter pack needs to be installed on version 4.0.1 of either the free or full edition of Reporter; so make sure you are up-to-date before starting the installation. The Veeam Reporter 4 download page has the new report pack available (as well as the 4.0.1 installation if you need to upgrade). The report pack is available on the free version as well. Once it is installed, the Veeam Reporter settings for SQL Server Reporting Services will appear as shown in the figure below:
There are three new reports in this pack:
- Hypervisor version migration: This report shows ESX(i) version (including build number) and patch levels to help you ensure all your hosts are up-to-date.
- Cluster overview: This report provides a quick overview of all resources for clusters or datacenters in terms of aggregated memory, CPU and disk resources as well as the HA and DRS settings from cluster configuration.
- Inactive VMs: This report shows VMs that have been inactive in the vSphere environment for extended periods of time that are possibly abandoned. Details such as last power-on date and storage consumed are shown. This report is shown below:
The installation is rather straight-forward for the Get to Know Veeam Reporter pack. The one thing that confused me in the lab was that the ZIP file that is downloaded must be extracted first, then there is a ZIP file that contains the report pack that is added to Reporter. When you download the report pack, extract it and the ZIP file enclosed within the download is what is installed to Reporter.
This report pack works for both the free and full versions of Veeam Reporter. Download it today!
