OpsCenter - Report on Backup Job Database Instance Name

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is it possible to report on database instance names? I have a SQL backup policy configured in NetBackup and it would be nice to report on databases themselves instead of just the server name.

In this article http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO43374 , it anounces it as a new feature for the 7.1 version. I am using 7.5.0.4 and find nothing.

The article states the following: "A new Report On parameter called Backup Job Database Instance Name is available when you edit custom reports. Using the Backup Job Database Instance Name parameter, you can view data for a specific MS-SQL database instance in a custom report."

 

I am NOT using or have license for OpsCenter Analytics.

Vprata,

Yes, there is a Filter for Database Instance Name...

You will need to create a custom report, or modify the Tabular Backup Report, and filter on this option.

Hi Tom,

Are you sure you don't have that option available because you have a licence for OpsCenter Analytics?

I do not (see attached image).

So question is: does the article need correction or is the feature just playing hard to get with me?

Thanks for the quick response.

Vprata,

Unfortunately, it does appear to be an OpsCenter Analytics only option.

I tried modifying the regular Tabular Backup report, and this filter is not available. 

Let me know if you have any questions...
