Nbdeployutil report only shows the media servers

I am new to nbdeployutil but when I run a gather and report the spreadsheet only reports back the 3 media servers we have connected to the master even though I know that there are at least a dozen clients connected to the master. Any idea on how to get a complete list for our capacity report?

Re: Nbdeployutil report only shows the media servers

Hi @mfalge 

Can you check these articles? Another question, what is your licence model? Traditional Licensing or Capacity Licensing? Depending on your lincence type there are these options:

--gather

Collects data for analysis with the report option. If the capacity or traditional parameter is used, only data for that specific license model is collected. If neither capacity nor traditional is specified, gather collects data for both license models.

--report

Produces a license report based on the data that is collected with the gather option. Specify the directory or list of directories for the utility to use for the report. You must use either the capacity or the traditional parameter when using the --report operation.

--capacity

Specifies the license model when used with gather or report. Use capacity to report on deployment according to NetBackup's per terabyte capacity licensing model.

--traditional

Used with gather or report to specify the license model. Use --traditional to report on deployment according to NetBackup traditional per server licensing model. The default value is 2160 hours (90 days)

Re: Nbdeployutil report only shows the media servers

Hi Thiago,

Thanks for your reply. We are using Capacity licensing and just to test I added --capacity to the --gather and tried again but with the same results. I've added the commands, output and summary page of the report.xls.

When I run the following command, I see about a dozen clients.

sudo /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bppllist -l -allpolicies | grep CLIENT | awk '{print $2}' | sort -u >/tmp/list

Anything else I can try? Is the master miconfigured?

Re: Nbdeployutil report only shows the media servers

@mfalge bppllist will confirm that policies exist for the clients, not that successful backups exist.

Can you confirm that regular backups exist for all clients? 

You need to check with bpimagelist (or Client Backup report in the GUI) to see if there are successful, unexpired backups in NBU catalog. 

I am surprised that your report only checked last 30 days - the default is supposed to be 90 days. 

If you can confirm that there are unexpired client backups, please try nbdeployutil with earlier startdate:
--start <MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss>

Re: Nbdeployutil report only shows the media servers

Thank you, Marianne. I tried adding the --start to the command as below but it still only shows 30 days (it even updated the start date in the report to 3/18/19). Running bpimagelist seems to indicate plenty of backups, although I'm not sure how to parse the date to see how far back they go.

sudo /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimagelist -l

sudo /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbdeployutil --gather --start="01/01/2019 12:00:00"
