You can enable FSA Reporting data collection for a file server that is already configured as an FSA archiving target in the Administration Console.
Note the following:
You must select an FSA Reporting database to hold the file server's FSA Reporting data. A wizard helps you to select an existing FSA Reporting database, or to set up a new FSA Reporting database.
Before Enterprise Vault creates the first FSA Reporting database, it prompts you for the credentials of a Windows account to use when it accesses FSA Reporting databases.
For non-Windows file servers, you must select a proxy server to perform the FSA Reporting data collection on the file server.
To enable FSA Reporting data collection for an existing target file server
Make sure that both a forward DNS lookup and a reverse DNS lookup succeed for the file server.
For a Windows file server, install the FSA Agent on the file server if it is not already present. You can install the FSA Agent by using the Install FSA Agent wizard, or manually.
See "Installing the FSA Agent on a Windows file server" in Setting up File System Archiving.
In the Administration Console, expand the Enterprise Vault site until the Targets container is visible.
Expand the Targets container and then the File Servers container.
Right-click the file server target for which you want to configure FSA Reporting, and from the shortcut menu click Properties.
On the file server's properties, select the Reporting Data Collection tab.
Check Enable data collection for FSA Reporting.
Choose the data collection settings to use with this file server. Do one of the following:
Check Use the default settings for FSA Reporting data collection. FSA Reporting then uses the default FSA Reporting data collection settings, which are set on the properties of the File Servers container.
Or uncheck Use the default settings for FSA Reporting data collection and provide the non-default settings for this file server.
Under Database server for FSA Reporting, click Select.
The FSA Reporting Database Configuration Wizard then helps you to select an FSA Reporting database in which to hold the FSA Reporting data for the new file server:
If no FSA Reporting databases are associated with the Directory database, the wizard helps you to create an FSA Reporting database.
If one or more FSA Reporting databases are already associated with the Directory database, you can choose to select an existing database, or to create a new one.
For non-Windows file servers, under Proxy server for FSA Reporting, click Select. The Proxy Server Selection wizard then helps you to select a proxy server to perform the FSA Reporting data collection. You can select an existing proxy server for FSA Reporting if one or more exist, or configure a new proxy server.
If FSA Reporting performs scans on the proxy server, make sure that no scan of the proxy server occurs while you perform this step. If an FSA Reporting scan is in progress, stop the scan or wait for it to finish.
On the Reporting Data Collection tab, click OK to save your changes and to exit from the file server's properties.
When you configure FSA Reporting data collection for a file server, Enterprise Vault automatically enables data collection for any existing target volumes.
If you add new target volumes you must enable them for data collection, if required.
