This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

We have a master server based on Solaris platform(6.5.6 version). I know we need to upgrade it to 7.x. :) We were trying to genearate a months backup status report and its showing only 6 days record but when we are running "Client Backups" report, it generating all possible data. Can someone please help me understand why is it so and how to fix it? Earlier, "Status of Backups" report was working fine.


Best Regards,

Are you trying to generate the reports through command line or through Activity monitor..If it is through command line paste the synatx of the command used.

Check Host Properties -> Master Server -> Clean-Up -> Keep Logs.

Someone may have changed it to 6. The default is 28 days.
