List of jobs not subsequently re-run and successful.

This is a NetBackup DPA question.

How do I get a list of failures which have NOT subsequently been re-run and had a successful outcome.

eg. Backup Job fails, backup re-tries and then succeeds. I don't want this in the list of failures.

Currently we work it by finding all failures and manually checking each failure to search whether or not there has been a subsequent 'successful job' outcome.

I'm attempting to customise this into a specific report, that can be run multiple times in a day, showing a diminishing list of errors as each one is addressed.

Any assistance on how I approach doing this would be appreciated.

Re: List of jobs not subsequently re-run and successful.

I've been looking at the "Num Failed Backup Jobs after Deduplication" data source - I would want the listing output of this rather than the numerical total of number of jobs.

eg.  I'd like to have a listing of all the backups that failed, if any had a later success within the same period, they are not included.

Maybe it's just a simple failure list report which I modify and I apply the deduplication algorithm?

Name      

Num Failed Backup Jobs after Deduplication      

Description      

Returns the number of backup jobs that are still in a failed state after a deduplication algorithm has been applied. This algorithm works by looking at all backups that have occurred over the reporting period, and checks to see that of the backups that failed, if any had a later success within the same period. If so, the earlier failures are not included in the result.

Returns      

Num Jobs - The total number of jobs that are have failed after de-duplication has taken place
