Can you confirm that email can be sent at OS level?

On Unix/Linux servers, confirm that you can use mailx as root user.

You have to configure BLAT for that to recieve email notification. Prior to that ask your Exchange or Team to allow NetBackup server to send notification (add NBU into internal receive connector)

Hi

Just a possible value add. Why are you using the reports in NBU, is there a specific need? Why not use something like OpsCenter? It's MUCH easier to setup reporting & emailing in there.

As far as I know the one that keeps data for 30days is free.

Little preview of week at glance report for clients, it's pretty trippy, you can hover over the jobs to see the status ect:

Apologized for my late response.

i used 2003 server.

i try also the blat.exe, but it doesn't work or maybe there is somthing i'v miss..

Instead get your server allowed from exchange team. Deploy Opscenter on either master or media server , (if you have big netbackup environment prefer to deploy opscenter on dedicated system (VM would do)

it's best solution and gives report output in 5 different formats that to scheduled on directly email, alerts, direct restore (flatfile) via opscenter web gui (# no extra licensing required, but NBU master server and opscenter must be at 7.5 and higher)

OPscenter comes as complimentary with every NBU suite .(Basic version) If you need customization with BI or chargeback etc you need to but analytics for that)

You have not shared details about your attempt to use blat?

Couple of TNs that may help (some old, but still valid):

i use this one.

c:\> blat -install emailserver.company.com useraccount@company.com 1 25

maybe i;ll try it again.:-)

More to blat than just install.... You need to copy blat.exe to system32 folder and modify nbmail.cmd.

See above TNs.

Hi Mariane,

Apologized for my late response.

By the way...i tried it again to use blat.exe.and it was successful but, the reaso nwhy im not recieving email because of my backbone email is not accepting, it need to coordinate to the owner.so i decided not to use.

regards.
