Sample Inventory report with summarization, chart, and property

This example demonstrates how to create an Inventory report that shows how servers are distributed in different locations across an organization. To retrieve the location of a server, you add a property, Location, in BMC Server Automation. You assign a default value to this property and change its value in the BMC Decision Support for Server Automation environment, if required.
