So, what's this .CAB file that is generated when running the Deployment Scanner, and what does it contain??

The .CAB file is generated when you run the Deployment Scanner option from EV7 upwards. The following Technote gives information on how to run this http://support.veritas.com/docs/300867

On completion, the .CAB file is normally kept within the Enterprise Vault program folder. You can open this .CAB file, or extract it, to view the content. The information below is from an EV8 deployment, earlier versions of Enterprise Vault have less information. The files can hold some very useful information, and most of them are best viewed using Microsoft Excel.

Great Article,

To expand on this slightly, these files are read and displayed in a number of HTML reports by the Deployment Scanner Summary Tool, found in the download section of Enterprise Vault i.e. https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/downloads/...

If you feel this is a solution please mark it as such. TIA Paul

Yep, that's right, but there is also a lot inside this file that is not shown in the Deployment Scanner summary tool.  Rockmead76 has written a great tool which is like the Deployment Scanner report on steroids - well worth using...

Thanks,

Mark
