Additional Information

Formerly known as NETIQKB9063

The Report Agent does not need to be installed on every Server in the environment to generate and retrieve Reports.  A Report Agent only needs to exist on a single AppManager Agent in order to be able to report against all reportable data.

Due to the intensive process of retrieving data and generating Reports, NetIQ does not recommend installing the Report Agent on the same Server as the Management Server component.
