MAP 6.5 Reports Not Stored? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know why or how MAP 6.5 fails to store its reports in the directory path My Document\MAP\Database_Name?

    User creates a second database to store the results of a new scan, but although the first database reports are visible the second database reports are missing.

    Problem description

    User (domain admin) installs on a new workstation dedicated for the purpose of MAP data collection. User managed to get one inventory done some weeks ago but wanted to run a second inventory to refresh the results. I advised that his best plan was to create a new database for this purpose, as in my experience MAP doesn’t do deltas, or even properly update changes, deletions etc.

    So he ran a second inventory with a new database name and all worked fine. Summary report said 921 PCs were found of which 500 were inventoried etd. 44% success rate. Nothing unusual here. Trouble is, when he goes to look for the Inventory report he finds that the new database has not generated a new folder path. In fact there is no data/reports for the new database at all, though he can still see the first database on the MAP folder path. My Documents\MAP\Database_Name

  • After generating a report in the new database, what happens when you go to View > Saved Reports and Proposals? This action is supposed to open the folder for the database that is currently in use.

  • It appears that there is no folder to open for the new database, though the folder for the previous database is stored on the path.
