Generating Infrastructure Overview Offline Report for Visio

In this article

    In addition to regular reports that open in a web browser and can be automatically delivered, Veeam ONE offers offline reports. This is a convenient way to view report data off-site, outside the local infrastructure or its networks.

    To view offline reports, you must install Veeam Report Viewer:

    1. Open Veeam ONE Web Client.

    For more information, see Accessing Veeam ONE Web Client.

    1. Open the Reports section.
    2. In the hierarchy on the left, select Offline Reports.
    3. In the list of offline reports, click any report.
    4. On the report page, click the Veeam Report Viewer link.
    5. Download the vmreportviewersetup.msi installer file.
    6. On the machine, where you want to install the Veeam Report Viewer, launch the installer file to start the Veeam Report Viewer setup wizard.
    7. Follow the steps of the setup wizard to install Veeam Report Viewer.

    In this scenario, you will generate the Infrastructure Overview (Visio) report for the VMware vSphere infrastructure. The infrastructure is presented with a set of diagrams that illustrate different views or inventories:

    • Configuration inventory
    • Storage inventory
    • Network inventory
    • Datastore utilization
    • vMotion

    Note:

    To open and edit this report, you must have Microsoft Visio installed.

    To generate the Infrastructure Overview report:

    1. Open Veeam ONE Web Client.

    For more information, see Accessing Veeam ONE Web Client.

    1. Open the Reports tab.
    2. In the hierarchy on the left, select the Offline Reports folder.
    3. In the displayed list of reports, select the Infrastructure Overview (Visio) report.
    4. Select the Show VMs check box.
    5. Click Preview.

    Veeam ONE Web Client will generate a file with the VMR extension and save it to the download location.

    1. Open the downloaded file on the machine where Veeam Report Viewer is installed.

    Veeam Report Viewer will process data in the VMR report and prepare the output. The output contains data viewable in Microsoft Visio.
