This is a report where a .CSV file can be imported and compared to the existing backup solution to determine if there are systems that are not being protected correctly. The purpose of this report is to show what hosts are not backed up because the backup application is not even aware of them. The report compares what OpsCenter hosts are known to be backed up with an external list that is fed in by .csv file. The list can come from a content management database (CMDB), DNS listings or any other authoritative source of what hosts should be backed up. The report works across all backup applications and shows you what backup application and policy executed the backup and the time of the last full or incremental backup.
The Client Coverage report tells you whether all clients in your environment are being backed up or not. OpsCenter can only report on clients that have already been defined and configured for backups. This report helps you to identify the clients that are a part of your environment but are not known to OpsCenter. These clients may not be getting backed up because of backup software not being installed or the clients not being configured for backups.
To run this report, you must specify a CSV file (comma-separated value) that contains a complete and authoritative inventory of all servers across the enterprise. Some of the independent sources of server inventory across the enterprise which can be used to generate a CSV file are the following:
OpsCenter imports data from the CSV file and compares the list of clients (available in CSV) with the clients known to OpsCenter. The clients which are present in CSV but not in OpsCenter can be easily identified from this report.
Figure: Client Coverage report shows a sample view of the Client Coverage report.
The CSV file must be located on the machine from where you are running the Client Coverage report. See About comparison of clients listed in CSV and OpsCenter. for more information on how the comparison takes place.
Where to Locate

This report shows a comparison of the list of clients being backed up against an independently-sourced list (like CMDB, third party and homegrown asset management systems) of clients.

Select a view from the Select View Name drop-down list. This can be done to view the report for a specific location, department etc. In case you select a specific view, you must create the CSV file that contains the clients in the particular view only. For example, if you want to see the Client Coverage report for HR department in Canada, then the CSV file must contain the client list specific to the HR department in Canada.
Client Selection Criteria
You can specify a part of the backed up client name so that the report shows data only for the specific backed up clients that are of your interest. For example, to see details of all backed up servers running Oracle which are known to have a string "ora" somewhere in the host name, you can type the following:
Type a report description.
