Are you sure you have 10.1 and not 10.0.1?

I can confirm that 10.1 DEFINITELY comes with the reporting server. Its not currently available to gold customers, but will be soon. If you have a Platinum support account you can download it.

Leave the examples thing with me... I'll see what I can do.

> I'm jumping into this late, but We are a SAV 10.1 Corp Edition company for end users. I've done some basic research and found that Corp Edition cant run a reporting server. Should I say, the reporting server does not come with Corp Edition. Does a reporting server generate reports that are better than was the SAV 10.1 corp console gives you. I can get good info from the console, but no good reports can be generated from it.

You may need a special group with 10.1 for the reporting server only, but the reporting will work with the lower version AV servers ( agent will not install on NT systems)
