Virtual Client Summary report
The Virtual Client Summary report shows details of all virtual clients of a NetBackup master server. Using this report, you can determine whether these virtual clients were backed up by NetBackup or not. Thus, you can report on the virtual clients that need to be protected. It also shows at a glance that last time the client was backed up. .
You can also drill down in this report to see the job details of a specific virtual client.
OpsCenter can poll the vCenter or Hyper-V server to determine what systems have been configured and compare that with the NetBackup policies that have been created. This helps to track those virtual machines that are not being protected by any NetBackup polices.
Cheking that the virtual machine is added in the is possible opnly when the policy is manually created or when successful backup has happened for the virtual machine.
Figure: Virtual Client Summary report shows a sample view of the Virtual Client Summary report.
The sample report shows an example of vCenter server that has a number of VMs configured. Most of the virtual clients do not exist in any NetBackup policy and need to be added or protected. It also shows at a glance the last time the system was backed up (from the Last Successful Backup Time column).
The Virtual Client Summary report shows the following columns:
Virtual Server Name
Name of the virtual server host such as VMware or Hyper-V server
Data store associated with the virtual client. Data Store is where virtual machine configuration files are stored.
Name of the backup host.
Virtual Client Name
