An operator can monitor reports, alerts, and other activities on the server to assist the administrator.
Stellar Reporter & Auditor for Exchange Server can export reports in PDF, CSV, XLSX, or HTML format. Administrators can search for specific information such as mailboxes of specific departments in the reports, and also customize (simplify) the reports in terms of the number of columns displayed.

To add a Global Catalog Server properly, ensure that the server and host machine -on which the software is installed- are on the same network and can communicate with each other. So, before adding a server, use command prompt to ping it from the host machine to confirm that they are on the same network. Server can be added only if the ping is successful. If using the server name fails, you can also try using its IP address.
Ensure that the user name and password provided during the installation are correct. The Apache service requires sufficient log on rights to function properly. For this, follow these steps:
To generate Mailbox Size reports, the server needs to be scanned so as to gather the essential data. Make sure the Exchange server’s Administrator profile is configured and connected on the machine where the software is installed. Add this profile under 'Administrator Outlook Profile Details' while adding the server. For the configured MS Outlook profile, uncheck the ‘Use Cached Exchange Mode’ option.

Make sure the Exchange server’s Administrator profile is configured and connected to the machine where the software is installed. Also, ensure that the Public folders are listed in the configured Administrator Outlook profile on the host machine.
This is because the relevant modules on the server need to be scanned for generating the reports. So, ensure that you have scanned the server before checking the reports. For the configured MS Outlook profile, check the ‘Use Cached Exchange Mode’ option and scan the Mailbox Content and Public Folder Content modules.
Make sure the Exchange logs paths entered while adding the server are correct and contains relevant log files. Also the path mentioned should be accessible from the host machine.For OWA & ActiveSync, scan the log files from all folders within the Log Files folder.
Make sure that you have selected the ‘Send Email' option while setting the Report schedule and Alert profile. In some machines, an issue might occur while sending e-mail due to conflict in Microsoft .NET Framework. For this, press the Windows key on your keyboard, type 'Windows Features', and press Enter. The Turn Windows features on or off dialog box appears. Select the .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0) check box, select OK, and reboot your computer if prompted.
