Report Tab

Click on the Report tab display reports on completed backup sets. Although reports are mailed to the user when the backup is executed, the Reports page allows you to browse reports from any previous month in which backup sets were run. The Report tab opens on the Summary report. 


Report Sub-Tasks

There are six reports available:

  • For each Disk List Entry (Host/Directory combination specified in Backup What page), it shows whether the backup was full or incremental and whether it was error free, with warnings or was with errors.
  • The Custom Reports page allows user to create custom Amanda reports and save the report query for future use.
