About scan reports
Scan reports include information about scans run on the computers in your security network. You can create scan filter configurations to filter the data for your scan reports. When you create a report, it appears in a new window. You can save the report settings to run the same report at a later date. You can also print or save the report.

To create a scan report
  1. Start Symantec System Center.
  2. In the left pane, expand Reporting, and then expand Reporting Servers.
  3. Click your reporting server.
  4. Type your reporting user name and password, and then click Login.
  5. In the right pane, on the Reports tab, click Scan Reports.
  6. In the Use saved report list box, select a saved filter configuration you want to use or use the default configuration.
  7. Under What type of Scan Report would you like to see, in the Report type list box, select the type of report you want to create.
  8. If you selected Scan Distribution Histograms, do the following:
    • In the Group by list box, select the way you want the information in the report to be grouped.
    • In the Bin width text box, type the data interval you want to use for the group by distribution.
    • In the Number of bins text box, type the number of data intervals you want to include in the report.
  9. Under What filter settings would you like to use, in the Scans From list box, select the date range for the report.
    You can specify a name for this report configuration in the Name text box or you can use the Scans From setting to filter the default report configuration.
  10. If you want to configure additional settings for the report configuration, click Advanced Settings and make any changes to the configuration.
    You can save the current settings to the existing configuration or you can create a new configuration.
