SQL Server Support Highlights Release of File Reporter 2.0.2

I’m excited to announce the release today of Novell File Reporter 2.0.2 which you can download here.

Some of the more notable new features in this version include:

Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2012

Supported databases now include both PostgreSQL (which continues to be shipped with Novell File Reporter) and Microsoft SQL Server 2012.


For procedures on properly configuring a new SQL Server 2012 instance that is compatible with Novell File Reporter, refer to Chapter 5 of the Novell File Reporter 2.0.2 Installation Guide.

Note: If your plans for upgrading to Novell File Reporter 2.0.2 include switching from the PostgreSQL database to a Microsoft SQL Server database, there is currently no migration utility available for migrating the database content.

Configuration Dashboard

A new configuration dashboard is the means of managing the product licensing and sequentially configuring and administering the database, NFR Engine, and Web Application.


Reporting on Administrative Shares

Novell File Reporter can now report on administrative and shares in Windows file systems.


Support for Microsoft Server 2012 R2

Novell File Reporter 2.0.2 fully supports Microsoft Server 2012 R2.

Performance Enhancements and Bug Fixes

We have sped up processing and have addressed quite a few bugs. For a complete list, refer to the Novell File Reporter 2.0.2 Release Notes available here.
