The Veritas Installation Assessment Service (VIAS) is a centralized web-based tool that lets you verify whether the systems in your environment meet the requirements to install or upgrade the Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability family of products by Symantec. By inputting or uploading environmental parameters, a summary view is provided which details hardware and software compatibility, including operating system, patches, and firmware required.

Once you've checked out VIAS, you may also be interested in a number of other free tools created by the Storage Development team, including Patch Central, Health Check, Error Code Lookup, Inventory Management Service. They're alll available from the Downloads section.

Thanks for participating in the community!

Currently you have to log into the VIAS Service to save the report in PDF format.  Once logged in click on MyVias and then the report that you want to export.  You can then export it in Text, Excel or PDF.

Hope this is what you are looking for.
