  2. Click , the Step Forward button, to step forward through the keystrokes.

    Note: The Step Forward and Step Backwards buttons are not enabled while the log is replaying.

  3. Click , the Step Backwards button, to step backwards through the keystrokes.
  4. Click , the Stop button, to stop the replay and reset the log back to the beginning.
  5. Click , the Replay Speed button, to change the speed of the replay. Clicking this button repeatedly steps through speed selections of 1 to 5 times the normal speed.

    Note: To close a text view of a log, click the Text View button again.


Management Console for Unix enables administrators to quickly and easily provide auditors with granular reports on Unix identity information, including the highly desirable assessment of which Active Directory user can authenticate on specific Unix systems. By consolidating the generation and viewing of reports within the console, Management Console for Unix reduces the time and effort required to create key reports that traditionally required multiple collections, data collation, and manual processes across multiple Unix systems.

The topics in this section explain how to export reports for the hosts managed through the mangement console. It also provides a description of the reports available on the Reporting tab.

Run Reports

You can run various reports that capture key information about the Unix hosts you manage from the mangement console and the Active Directory domains joined to these hosts from the Reports view on the Reporting tab.

Note: The Active Directory reports are only available when you are logged on as an Active Directory account in the Manage Hosts role.

To run reports

  1. Ensure the hosts for which you want to create reports have been recently profiled.

    Reports only generate data gathered from the clients during a Profile procedure. Profiling imports information about the host, including local users and groups.

    Note: You can configure the mangement console to profile hosts automatically.

    (See Profile Hosts Automatically for details.)

  2. From the mangement console, click the Reporting tab.
  3. From the Reports view, expand the report group names to view the available reports, if necessary.
    • Host Reports

      Unix host information gathered during the profiling process

    • User Reports

      Local and Active Directory user information

    • Group Reports

      Local and Active Directory group information

    • Access & Privileges Reports

      User access information

    • License Usage Reports

      Product licensing information.

  4. Use one of the following methods to select a report:
    • Double-click a report name in the list (such as the Unix Host Profiles report).
    • Right-click a report name and select Run report.
    • Click the report icon next to a report.

    The selected report name opens a new tab on the Reports view which describes the report and provides some report parameters you can select or clear to add or exclude details on the report.

  5. Optionally clear parameters to exclude information from the report.
  6. To create a report, either
    1. Click Preview to see a sample of the report in a browser.
    2. Open the Export drop-down menu and select the format you want to use for the report: PDF or CSV (if available).


    If the CSV report does not open, you may need to reset your internet options. (See CSV or PDF Reports Do Not Open for details.)

    By default, the mangement console creates reports in the application data directory:

    • On Windows XP/2003 Server:
      %SystemDrive%:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix\reports
    • On Windows 2008 Server/Vista/7:
      %SystemDrive%:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix\reports
    • On Unix/Mac:

    Note: You may need to reconfigure your browser preferences to allow you to save the report in a specific folder.

    It launches a new browser or application page and displays the report in the selected format.

Note: When generating multiple reports simultaneously or generating a single report that contains a large amount of data, One Identity recommends that you increase the JVM memory. (See JVM Memory Tuning Suggestions for details.)


The mangement console provides comprehensive reporting which includes reports that can help you plan your deployment, consolidate Unix identity, secure your hosts and troubleshoot your identity infrastructure. The following table lists the reports that are available in Management Console for Unix.

Note: Report availability depends on several factors:

  • User Log-on Credentials: While some reports are available when you are logged in as supervisor, there are some reports that are only available when you are logged on as an Active Directory user. (See Active Directory Configuration for details.)
  • Roles and Permissions: Reports are hidden if they are not applicable to the user's console role. (See Console Roles and Permissions System Settings for details.) For example, you must have an activated policy server to activate the sudo-related reports.
