Custom Lifecycle / History reporting needed.

We would like to be able to report on machine name and User name to see the history of a pc or user. Example: Employee leaves company and lawsuit requires us to attempt to find all PCs this user has ever logged into, what software they had, etc.....

Thats just an example, perhaps an extreme one, but we would like to be able to track use the data we have to report the entire life of a pc. Does anyone have any unique reports that they can share?

We are also planning to dive deeper into getting value from ZCM, I would love to hear what other custom reporting you have done in your environment to ease your day to day tasks.

Just to throw into the pile, how long are you keeping history?

We are currently keeping all data and we have an excess amount to carve into reports. We are working on that end now. We have reports built for specific needs but nothin as advanced as a life cycle report. We had mentioned the idea to a Novell contact and started working out the ideas but he in no longer with Novell after the restructure they had.

I really don't have access to a system that would contain that the data to
create such a report. Hopefully, someone else will jump in.
