The top of the report's Summary tab details the basis for the report's information. Review the Period Analyzed for the source of the information for the report. The Period Analyzed section includes:
Start date for the gather for each master server.
End date for the gather for each master server.
The total number of days gathered for each master server.
The input directory for each master server that is associated with the report.
The start and the end dates are not necessarily the dates that are specified for the --gather option. These are the dates within the time period that you specified where images exist. If images do not exist for a specified start or end day, the day is not listed. The nearest date with backup images is included and listed.
The Input Directory column displays the path to the gathered data. Within the Input Directory is the
nbdeployutil-gather-timestamp.log file. If non-default inputs were used in the collection of catalog data, the log file displays this information.
Under the Options section, confirm that the list of master servers is correct. If there are missing or extra master servers, rerun the report.
When the review of the entire report is complete, all the values in therow under should be zero. As you reconcile the other tabs in the report, these values automatically update to zero.
