Backup Exec Custom Report

Created: 13 Apr 2011 • Updated: 03 Feb 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have not really done too much with custom reports, but they could be really usefull in my situation.

I am looking to create a custom job that will print out the last successful backup date of each job. I could do this manually but we have over 60 servers running a diff and a full backup.  

it should look like this

Job Name/type            Latest Successfull Backup      

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

So what you need to do is the following:

1. Open up your Reports tab, and right-click Custom Reports.

2. Choose "New Custom Reports", and give your report a name.

3. Under Field Selection, change the Category to "Job History Group".

4. Choose these fields: Job Name and Status.

This will give you the name of the job, and the status of the last job. Unfortunately, there isn't an option for the last successful backup like you wanted. You'd have to see what the reports were like under the Jobs reports.

If you were running a CASO, it might have made things a bit easier. The only other option is to try poking around the BEDB using SQL to see what query you can write out of it.
