DPA 6.3 and Networker 9.1, VmWare clients?

Jump to solution

Hi,

we are backupping a vmware farm using Networker 9.1 and each "client" is a virtual machine.

If I run a backup clients list or a backup clients job report I can't see any output, because I think DPA considers only the agent-based backup clients.

Can anyone tell me how to show the virtual machines in my reports? I can't find anything in the guide

Thank you

Hi Antani2,

You need to open a Service Request with Support to check report data source in your dpa server.

Or if you able to edit your report please see what is the data source is used in the report.

If data source is using "view_client_status table" then need to change with "view_backupjob".


Make sure you must make a copy of report and edit the copy.


Thanks,
