Importing the TADDM report package to Tivoli Common Reporting

To import the predefined TADDM reports into TivoliĀ® Common Reporting, you can import the TADDM report package.

You must first have the Tivoli Common Reporting feature installed on your system. Tivoli Common Reporting is provided with some Tivoli products but is not currently included with TADDM.
A Tivoli Common Reporting report package is a .zip file containing one or more reports or report designs along with their required resources, in a format that can be used by Tivoli Common Reporting. The predefined BIRT reports for TADDM are provided in a report package that you can import to Tivoli Common Reporting.

For some BIRT reports, there are different versions of the same report available depending on which server the report is being run, for example, the TADDM_SNAPSHOT_CHANGE report on the domain server or storage server, and the TADDM_SNAPSHOT_SYNC_CHANGE report on the synchronization server. Generally, only the appropriate version of a report is available, but after importing BIRT reports into Tivoli Common Reporting, both versions of a report might be available. Ensure that you use only the version of the report that is appropriate to the server on which you want to run the report.

After importing BIRT reports into Tivoli Common Reporting, some reports with the text Drill-through only in the report name might be available. These reports are intended to be run by drilling down through selected data in another report and you must not run them separately.

The Server Affinity by Scope report cannot be imported into Tivoli Common Reporting.

For more information about importing report packages, refer to the Tivoli Common Reporting documentation.
