Enhancements

Backup Activity Reports

Added job message error messaging to the Backup Activity and Failures report for export. This capability (enabled through the criteria) provides the final 2048 characters of job messages that are associated with errors. This feature provides data in an exported CSV file that can be fed to automation tools to find the root causes of failures.

NetWorker

  • Updated to ignore job data for pseudo_saveset backup targets. The pseudo_saveset is a metadata anchor saveset used to register important parameters concerning the workflow of client jobs and impacts a variety of features includes the immediate cloning of individual savesets. It is now automatically generated at the start of the backup as an indicator of the list of savesets configured to start for the client.
  • Updated RMAN target names to set to Saveset Name, an improvement over the previous “NetWorker Module for Databases and Applications” naming convention.
  • Changed the byte count from zero to negative one when the byte count is indeterminable from the raw data source to signify unknown in Bocada reports.
