    Executive report once again is not working as expected. Has anyone successfully running this report ?

  • Hi andrius,

    Thanks for using this feature. The main deliverable of this feature is the set of views in SCOM DW DB through which you can get reporting data across all your DPM servers. I would encourage you to build your own custom reports leveraging that data. This report is just meant to demonstrate the power of these views.

    Regarding your questions,

    1. The list of data sources is not exhaustive. For example, System State is not present in the list. If you have any data sources that are one of the 6 shown in the report but are not seen, please tell us and also mention their version number.
    2. The backup failure categorization is not completely implemented in this report. They all map to "Other". This will probably be fixed in a future iteration.
    3. Your bandwidth utilization chart is showing data. Your SEND data is pretty close to 0. That's because it shows the data that was sent from DPM server to other machines. If you perform recoveries from your DPM server this metric will go up.

    Thanks.

  • Is there a resource available that we could see to look over the "Custom Report" that was used as an example in the initial RU 5 MP announcement. It looks exactly what we would like for included in out reporting

    Thanks
