Report tab descriptions
The nbdeployutil utility examines the image headers in the NetBackup catalog to determine one of the following:
For traditional licensing, nbdeployutil determines the servers and clients in the NetBackup environment.
For capacity licensing, nbdeployutil determines the amount of data NetBackup protects. The way that the client policies and schedules are configured can affect the results.
The licensing report is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The tabs that appear in the spreadsheet depend on whether the report is a traditional or a capacity licensing report.
Table: Report tab descriptions
The contents of this tab differs for a traditional or a capacity report.
Traditional and capacity
Displays a table similar to the line itemization table you may see in a credit card bill. Each line is a charge that contributes to the final total. Each line lists the capacity that is calculated for a client or policy combination.
Displays the names of clients that are registered with the master server but are not backed up.
A listing of host names, along with associated computer information. The associated information includes information such as: platform, computer type, database software installed, SAN media server, and NDMP.
A list of computers that are NDMP servers and the corresponding tier number of the client. When you reconcile the report, you need to address the clients that are found on this tab.
A list of the virtual servers or the virtual hosts that were detected in the environment.
Details the type of drives and the host or the library where the drive resides. Lists the host names that are associated with each drive as well as information about virtual tape libraries, shared drives, and vaulted drives.
Interpreting the Results
Explains how to examine the report and how to reconcile the information in the report with your actual environment.
