Is there a way to generate a daily report that would tell us disk utilization for each database? Maybe some eye candy like a pie chart that makes management smile? :)

I know we have MOM 2005, but I am not sure is a report like I am descriping is possible.

Eye candy. I like that.
Do you mean utilisation as in space available on the disk? (Yes, MOM is your job) or do you mean utilisation as in queues, bytes read/written etc? (Standard Perfmon is your job there)

yes, a program called cacti can monitor and generate graphs on a daily basis.  you can install it on a windows or linux server to monitor via snmp or WMI.

Check the cacti forums for the exchange script:

I setup the linux version, but from what i hear the windows version is easier to setup and of course i provided the link to the exchange monitoring script above :)
