In the fifth step of the Vault process reports are generated. Reports track the media that Vault manages. You and your off-site storage vendor can use the reports to determine which media should be moved between your site and the off-site storage location. You can also determine when the moves should occur.
Reports can be generated as part of the Vault job or manually after the job is finished. Reports can be generated for each job individually or consolidated with a consolidated eject operation. Generating reports is optional.
