Issue:

 

 

NetWorker RMAN jobs protected size do not include in the Estimated protected Backup Capacity Details report.                                                           

 

 

Cause:

 

 

The report is working as designed. For the RMAN jobs, these are all being filtered out and not included in the existing system template. The Estimated protected Backup Capacity Details report is meant to show jobs(job size) from a discovered RMAN server only and not those present in NW. This issue can be found if the RMAN server is not discovered.                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

A work around is available to resolve this issue.   
   
    We can create a custom report template by modifying the design of available system report template of Estimated protected Backup Capacity Details.   
    The workaround steps are mentioned below:   
   
    Reports-->Report Templates-->System Report templates-->Filter Estimated Protected Backup Capacity Details-->Save As Custom Template-->Design-->Select datasource Last Backup Details by Client and Job properties-->Condition-->Edit Condition-->Remove the condition "Job does not begin with RMAN"-->OK and Save.   
   
    In the condition of the data source labelled as 'Last set of Full jobs per client - excludes image level backups', remove the condition 'AND job does not begin with RMAN:'   
   
    This customized report will include the NetWorker RMAN jobs protected size. Hence the customized report output will bring more accuracy.
