The choices in this month’s poll (the winner becomes December’s free SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) report) are:
List of PCs by SQL 2008 Edition OR Count of Disk Descriptions
List of PCs by SQL 2008 Edition provides you with the PC Name, Version Number, Instance Name, and Installed Directory for a particular SQL 2008 edition. In the full feature set, this is the drill through report from Count of PCs by SQL 2008 Editions, and from List of PCs by SQL 2008 Edition you can drill through to a further report, Computer SQL Details.
Count of Disk Descriptions returns a list of disk descriptions and their count. It may seem odd to you as to why you would want to know the count of different types of HD disks, but there is useful information here. This report will show you the number of standard drives, Iomega drives, USB drives, storage arrays, and re-directed physical drives used by Hyper-V. This is a quick and simple way to see the number of disk drives used in your environment. In the full feature set, this report will drill through to List of PCs by Disk Description, which in turn will drill through to a further report, All-in-one PC View.
Stay tuned because next week we’ll tell you how you can vote for your favorite report!
