Hello.

Backup Exec 2010 question.

All I want to do is to have a report be printed out daily.

I must be missing the obvious because I'm not seeing where I do that.

Can someone point me the right way?

Under report tab click on the report you want to run.

In the left pane click on new report job.

Under Settings --> Notifications select the printer from which report should get printed.

Also check the check box include report also along with the notification option at the bottom of the window,

Under schedule select the schedule for the report job to run...

Hope this helps..

regards..

I haven't looked at this for a while but if printing to a network printer it must be configured in the operating system whilst logged in as the Beackup Exec Service account, as otherwise BE can't detect the printer to access when it comes to the report.

That did it thanks.

It didn't occur to me that i'd have to make the report run as a job.

Being sent as an email is better than just sending it to a printer too.

 

The title I have for the report isn't very descriptive though.

I made it "Last 24 Hours".

Unfortunately when printed out daily and placed in a binder it's just about useless.

Anyway to get it to change the title to the date and then adjust it to a calendar? Like some kind of Excel-like formula?

Sorry, i think that's not possible with BE reporting, not quite sure. 

Thanks...
