I am new to Operations Manager and previously have been using HP Storage Essentials. Is there a way to setup reports to be exported to a directory or send an email address?
General Health overview, performance statistics, storage utilization are some of the topics I'd like to report on. I have not been able to figure this out and cannot find a section in the DFM Operations Manager Admin guide.

Log into DFM, and select Reports from the Control Center tab. The bottom option there is Schedule. Once you click on that, you will see all of the canned reports that are available(and any you may have created).
All of this assumes you have your mailhost information setup under Setup, Options, Alerts and Events.
If you get to creating your own reports, they will show up under the report section as well. One thing DFM does really well, in my opinion, is allow you to build reports. That is done under Schedule, Custom. It will probably take you some time to figure out where everything is and how you want it all put together, but it can pay off.
Our reports are saved to a NAS drive, which a Unix box has access to. I have scripts that go into the directory, and puts all of the reports we get via email into a webpage so they are all available in one location, that is very easy to access, for anyone who wants to look.

We started using a tool for our 3PAR arrays an we pointed it at our NetApp filers and it is working pretty good for us. The tool is called Arxview, they have trial version.
