About creating and viewing reports

You can view and print the following reports from the ESM console with an HTML browser.

The following information describes the types of reports that you can view:


This report contains information about the object that is currently selected in the summary branch. The report lists the results of the most recent policy runs in spreadsheet format. The report identifies which policy run provides the information for each module. For example, if the most recent run involves a single module, the report lists the following:

  • The most recent run number for that module.

  • The most recent of the previously run numbers for each of the other modules.


This report contains information about the modules in a policy and the activated checks in the modules.

Policy run

This report lists the policy runs for each of the connected managers. Information in the report includes the current status, the start time, the finish time in case the policy run has completed, the policy name, and the domain name.


This report lists the objects in the template.


This report lists the properties for each agent in the selected domain. These properties include the agent's operating system, version number, network protocol, network port number, and computer type.


The Executive Report is a one-page summary that displays the enterprise's conformity to each security module.

To create a report

  1. Select an object in the related branch of the enterprise tree.

  2. From Reports on the menu bar, choose the type of report.

    For example, to produce an agent security report, select the agent in the summary branch, then click Security in the Report pull-down menu. The Report Options dialog box lets you configure the report.

When you select Report Options, you must designate a location for the resulting report files. Because these files contain sensitive data, you should specify a secure location for them on a network drive.

Each report folder has a datestamp and a timestamp with the name of the node that was used to create the report.

Before you email a report, compress the entire report directory. Notify the recipients that they must load the frames.html file to view the report.
