This article describes how to generate and modify the Retention Compliance Details report.


The Retention Compliance Details report provides a comprehensive view of asset compliance with long term retention policies. By default, this report is generated monthly. 


To generate and view the Retention Compliance Details report: 

Step 1: Log in to your Unitrends appliance via SSH.
Note: A terminal emulator such as PuTTY can be used to establish an SSH connection from a Windows system. 

Step 2: Run the command ltr_compliance_report.php -t <report_type> [options..]

Usage instructions for the ltr.compliance_report.php script:

 -t <report_type> report type (required);                   
valid values: singleSource, multipleSources, allAssets

 -s <sources> comma-separated list of source names (optional);
applicable only on target system and when report_type is 'singleSource' or 'multipleSources'

 -f <use_html> report format - use HTML (optional);       
specify 1 for true, 0 for false

 -l <report_location> path of location to store the generated report (optional)
If any of the optional arguments aren't passed in, the corresponding settings in 'RetentionComplianceReport' section of master.ini are used.

Step 3: Retrieve the Retention Compliance Details report. By default, the report can be found in /usr/bp/reports.dir titled with the following naming scheme: <source_name>_retention_details_report
Note: To access the report more easily from a Windows system, use the mv command to move the report to /backups/samba, where it can be accessed at \\<appliance IP>\samba via your file browser.
