Configuration Reports sometimes referred to as Settings Reports, offer much-needed information about your machine. The report details all the settings on your machine. The report also includes the version numbers for the software / firmware on your device. You may need this information for troubleshooting or for reference after any changes are made to the system. We recommend that you periodically print out a configuration report so that you have an up-to-date report on hand. But there have been some questions on the Customer Support Forum about how to stop the report from printing when the machine is powered on. Some machines may print the report every time the machine is powered on as a default. This may not be the best option for your work environment.
You can disable the option for printing the configuration/settings report at power on either on the machine itself or through the web interface for the machine, CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS) or Embedded Web Server. The instructions for disabling this feature are available on the support page for your machine. Search on “configuration on startup” to find the solutions for disabling the feature. You can also find the solution for how to print the configuration/settings report when you need it by searching on “configuration report” on the support page for your machine.
Most of the reports offered by the machine can be controlled from the control panel of the machine or through the CWIS. To find information on controlling other reports search on “report”. If you are unable to find the information you need you can always ask for help from other Xerox printer and multifunction users on the Customer Support Forum or by contacting your local support centre.
So print out a current configuration report and keep it near the machine and then find out more about all reports, you may just find out some very useful information.
