10.7 Enabling Interim Local Storage of Microsoft Excel Reports

You can enable interim local storage of Microsoft Excel reports to enhance the report distribution performance.

Secure Configuration Manager saves Microsoft Excel reports in a local directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\NetIQ\Secure Configuration Manager\Core Services\tmp) in the interim, while also saving them in a network location. If there is a network connectivity outage and reports are not saved in the network location, you can manually copy the reports from the local directory to the network location.

To enable Secure Configuration Manager to save Microsoft Excel reports in a local directory:

  1. Go to the Advanced tab in the Core Configuration Utility.

  2. Change the value of the gladiator/report/Report Export Save Excel Locally/Enabled field to true.

  3. Restart NetIQ Core Services.
