if you are looking for report over the mail you need to write a script..

if only just report.. you can get that from GUI---> reports---> status of backups.

and copy to excle and create a report.

if I wanted to script it, where can I look?

I wanted to automate this  to come out every day if possible and the gui gave me EXACTLY what we wanted for the audit, but wanted it more efficently if possible?

lille add up to the above post-

 if possible try run the report-print-save it in.jpg format and store it for audit prupose.

you are in windows.. so need windows experts to write some scritps..

if not GUI---  i would go with Opscenter for daily reporting.. ( i am not windows scripting expert)

yes this company has its enviornment in windows, and I have a windows expert who could script with powershell to automate it and pull the data, I would just want to know where I can direct them to grab the data.

and we have already rulled out using ops center.

Hi D. Davis,

Below is the link that describes on how to run specific reports thru command line.

I do hope above documents will help you...

you would need to use the bperror command to get this info... test the command output manually if that works you can make use of this command in the scrpts..

yes, the command in the tech note should able to use the in the script...

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bperror -U -backstat -s info -d mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss -e mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss

bperror command also have some additionl options look in below tech note , and see if you can make use of them to get the more approriate output that fits your requirement
