What are my options for generating reports in EPO, automatically and, deliver results to a specified email address???

We're going to update to 4.0 once SP1 is released but until then, I am looking for a way to generate daily reports using something like ms access 2007. What methods have you used to make up for this missing feature of McAfee's product. Thank You.

Hi all,

What type of reports are you talking about ?

Are you going to be querying the SQL data directly and is the ePO installation linked to a SQL Server or are you just running the MSDE 2000 that it installs if you have no SQL cluster ?

It depends what you are trying to achieve, dependent on what you need, you might find that the Notifications section in ePO will provide you with a temporary solution

I need to know a bit more about what you are trying to achieve, so if you can let me know what type of report you want then I can help more

Apologies for not staying up to date and, thanks for the response. As an admin, I've been using the built in reporting for a long time and it works for me. We're now trying to get our datacenter people involved in monitoring EPO and so, I'm looking for a less complicated way to deliver reports, both in terms of permissions and ease of use. Late in the game I know with 4.0 and the SP1 update on the horizon, we'll problably move over to the new version soon.

I guess this is more of a general question about mining data for reporting purposes from an SQL 2000 dbase. I've heard of people using Access to do so but where do I start?
