Generating Custom Infrastructure Report

Veeam ONE allows you to create custom reports and include specific properties that are not covered in predefined reports.

For this scenario, you will configure the Custom Infrastructure report to present some in-depth information about your hosts:

  • Version
  • Build
  • Bios version
  • Manufacturer

Before you begin, make sure you have hosts connected to Veeam ONE as described in the Connecting VMware vSphere Servers section.

To create the Custom Infrastructure report:

  1. Open Veeam ONE Web Client.
