I have to able to export a report and be able to email it from SANsymphony-V.

I have the powershell scripts but I can't make any sense of any of it

http://www.datacore.com/SSV-Webhelp/Exporting_Data_Usage.htm

That's the page that comes with the instructions

It's a windows server 2008 r2 standard running net 4.5.1

1. What type of report do you want to create?  HTML, PDF, TEXT, PNG...
2. Where you want the report saved?
3. What are the Host Group names to report on?
4. How many days should be included in the report (how days to go back)
5. How do you want to sort the report?
6. Detailed report or Data Usage report?
7. What order should the report be sorted (Ascending or Descending)
8. Do you want the report creation date in the name on the report file?

If you can answer these questions, the report can be configured.

Then the command line should be:

Command for the data usage report:
Export-DcsReport   -ReportName "SANsymphony-V Disk Usage Report"  -ExportType Pdf  -Path "C:\reports\" -DaysBack 1 -SortBy "HostGroupName" -AddDateToFileName 

Open in new window


Command for the detailed report:
Export-DcsReport   -ReportName "SANsymphony-V Detailed Report"  -ExportType Pdf  -Path "C:\reports\" -DaysBack 1 -SortBy "HostGroupName" -Detailed -AddDateToFileName 

Open in new window

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Ok the error states that path is not a valid option. Try running it without the -Path "c:\reports\" in the command.
