If necessary, you can select an audit installation and click Change Credentials to specify a different user name and password for connecting to a specific installation, then click Next.

5) Specify the name and folder location for the deployment report and whether to hide host, zone, and installation names in the report output, then click Next.
By default, the deployment report output is located in your Documents folder with a name in the format of Centrify_Deployment_Report_yyyymmdd, where yyyymmdd is the year, month, and date indicating when you are generating the report.
If a report of the same name already exists in that location, a version number suffix is added to the default report name.
Select the option to Hide host, zone, and installation names from the report to keep this information private. The deployment report wizard will generate random strings to replace host, zone, and installation names in the report output. 
Note that selecting this option does not obfuscate the Active Directory forest name. The forest name is required to send the report output to Centrify. All other names included in the report can be replaced with random strings.
