Ops Center Report on hosts with no full backup

Created: 23 Oct 2012 • Updated: 24 Oct 2012 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is there a report in Ops Center that would tell me what hosts have not completed a Full backup in the past 30 days?

Thanks

OpsCenter Analytics has a report under "Client Reports", called "Clients Not Backed Up", where you can specify a number of days to look back in the data and list any clients defined to policies that have not run a backup. 

I see some discrepancies (a client is listed as not being backed up, but I am looking at it in the Activity monitor and it has been backed up every day, and another where the report doesn't honor the "Policy" filter for "Active" policies), but it gives a starting point to investigate.

Thanks, I found that one  and was using it. but if a host does a full backup 6 months ago and only diffs and cumms since, it will satisfy the critirea of the report as being backed up. I am looking for a report that tells me just the hosts that have not had a Full backup in past 30 days or so.

Ahh, I see what you mean, and now I'm wondering why that also is not an option in the filters, too!  I can't figure out a way to do that in a custom report, either.  There may be a way to create an SQL query, but I don't have that expertise. 

I would suggest submitting this as an idea/enhancement requests here on Connect.  I'd certainly vote for it!

As a workaround, you could run a "bpplclients" command on your master server to create a list of all the clients defined to all policies, then use OpsCenter to create a list of clients that did have a full backup in the last 30 days, and compare the two lists.
