    Check out this health check script, it provides an extensive amount of information that can be captured including the changes you mentioned -

    William,

    Thanks for your reply. I already checked your script and especially the sample reports.

    It's not quite what I'm loking for but it's a start.

    Someone gave me the tip to use the Vesi. I will check that out and let you know.

    Regards,

    Rob

    DRS, HA, advanced settings

    All these are being captured and more, so not sure what is missing. Remember the sample report is not representative of what is being captured by the report, if anything its < 10% as the environment that I executed the script against is tiny.
