Re: Generate partition Space report without reporting server

It should be easy to do this right from the ZCC....
Under the Reports section on the left, simply create a "Customer Report".
For Criteria, just set "Free Disk Space" to less than the amount desired....This should be based on Drive C.

Re: Generate partition Space report without reporting server

So, yes, it is fairly straightforward. I created a custom report based on Hardware Components, focused on Hard Disk, and set the columns to Machine Name, Logical Drives, Disk Space, Free Disk Space and Hard Disk Space. Report works just fine.

One problem however. As an example, I have two drives in my laptop. The second drive is my D:\ drive and that's fine. However, the first drive is my C:\ drive AND my F:\ drive. This inventory report lumps the C and F drive into a single row - Logical Drives value is "CF" - and lumps the disk space values for the two logical drives together as well. So if your disks have pure C:\ drives with no multiple partition configurations, then this report will do everything you want.

ZENworks Reporting Server, however, does a better job at separating the partitions. You'll need to create an ad hoc view using the Inventory field set, and then add these columns to a table layout:
General Device Attributes > Machine Name
Hardware Specific Attributes > Logical Drives > Drive Letter, Available Space (MB), Total Space (MB)

I'll leave the filtering to you, but "Hardware Specific Attributes > Logical Drives > Drive Letter contains C" seems like a good starting place. Note that, depending on operating systems in your environment, if you filter as "C:\" then you may lose some useful records as the C-drive for some older OS instances cones through as a simple "C" so beware.
