(to update just rerun the script with the "-overwrite $true" parameter)
June 27 - have made some small adjustments to the reports.
- The color rule for the package error was wrong ,it's now fixed.
- Added Package type to the details report.
Had some trouble with content distribution to my distribution points last week. The patch Tuesday update package had failed to distribute to two of my DP's causing some clients to fail on installing patches.
The problem solved itself after some time,but it gave me an idea of a Distribution Point Dashboard, similar to my OSD Dashboard. The though is to have a single pane of glass to quickly give the information i need about my distribution points.
This is the result. as you can see I'm of the monochrome colour scheme for now, It's summer ,time for some more color!
Distribution Point Dashboard & Distribution Point Group Dashboard
Distribution Point Details
In the zip file you'll find a script to upload the reports and three reports in a sub folder. If you run the script with only the webservice parameter i'll upload the reports to ../Larsen Reports/Distribution Point/ folder and change the data source to your Configmgr Server
(Read more about the script and additional parameters here)
About the reportsDP and DP Group Report are almost the same ,the only difference is the controls. If you only have a few distribution points or you don't use distribution point groups ,go ahead an use this one.
If you have many distribution points the DP Group Report is a better choice, it allows you to first select a distribution point group and then select DP's from that group.
The Reports have a "Visual Limit" of about 10 DP's. The report will still work, but the graph might not be very readable with stats for 200 DP's on it:-)
The main part of the report is usage reporting for the DP's, but bellow that there a summary where i tried to show some useful info about the distribution points, like package status ,installed features and disk usage.
DP Details is as the name suggest for displaying details for a single distribution point. Displays a lot of the same information as the two others ,but it has details for all the packages on that DP. The Packages are sorted so that any problems are at the top.
It's linked up as a sub report for the two others ,but it can be run stand alone also.
- Found out that a few of our DP's where running low on disk space
- One of our very remote Distribution Points had 6 packages that where "failed" and one forever "in-progress"
- Our Endpoint Protection signature package was well overdue for a cleanup ,it contained 1732 files and was 2GB in size!!
If this report helped you spot and solve some problems/errors ,post bellow.
