Custom Report
Custom Report is one of the key features of Admin Report Kit for IIS (ARKIIS) that provides customized view for the IIS configuration settings.
 
Normally IIS Reporting tools will report the IIS configuration settings according to tab classifications such as Web Site, Operators, Home Directory, etc. But the Custom Report utility combines any number of tabs and their properties and provides consolidated report for the selected Web Server.
 
Custom reports can be generated for Web Server/Web Site and Virtual Directory Levels separately.
 
Example:
To see the status of both Web Site General properties and its Operators information, the administrator has to perform the following steps.
 
Click  button in the toolbar report window.

Or Select Custom Report.. under Web Sites Report from the Tools menu.

   

Or Right click anywhere on the main/report window, and select Custom Report from the popup menu.

By default the current machine's IIS Server will be displayed in the Internet Information Server tree, which appears on the left pane. And by default the Report Name is displayed as “(none)” and the General tab settings are currently loaded.

The Custom Report window will appear.

      

How to Connect another IIS Server from Custom Report? 
Select Connect... from the Report menu. 

     

Or Right click on the Internet Information Servers tree, and select Connect... from the popup menu.

The Connect to server dialog box appears.

      

Enter the IIS Server name in the Server name textbox and press

If the given IIS Server is available in the network and is connectable then it will be attached in the Internet Information Server Server tree.
