Promodag Reports V 10.0.411 brings the option of selecting and groupin mailboxes by DAG (Database availability group).

For those who are not familiar with this exclusive feature of PROMODAG Reports that allows the user to select and group objects by attribute, here is how to do it.

Selecting mailboxes by DAG

Selection by DAG is available in all the reports that allow to select mailboxes, for example Mailbox Storage Information.

In this example, the report deals with all mailboxes within the DAG AvilGrp2013.

Selecting Mailboxes by DAG

Note: The new layout of the Exchange Organization lets you easily view both the servers, and the databases within a given DAG:

Grouping mailboxes by DAG

The ability to group mailboxes by DAG is probably the most interesting feature because it lets you produce a report that breaks down the size of mailboxes by DAG.

First select all your mailboxes in the Selection tab. Then, select the DAG attribute at Level 1 in the Group tab.

Grouping Mailboxes by DAG

Then, open the Content tab and select Totals only in the Detail level option. In this way, mailboxes will not be listed one after the other in the report. You will obtain a report similar to this one:

Reporting Mailboxes by DAG

 

By following the same process in the Number of Recipients Grouped by Attributes report, you will obtain the number of mailboxes in each DAG.

Bug fixes

  • The status of recipients (Cc, Bcc) was not taken into account during the import of message tracking data. As a result, the option allowing to filter messages by number of Cc or Bcc correspondents in the Find Specific Messages returned inaccurate results.
  • In certain circumstances, the program could crash while importing data and Windows returned an error involving components of the operating system (ntdll.dll, kernelbase.dll).
