Upon trying to create report to see failed backups and or replications over the past "X" number of days or between date "Y" and "Z" report produces no results when failed tasks show in the my jobs view is populated with "X" number of failed tasks.
In vRanger the job is always successful it is the task that can be successful, can fail, can be aborted, and can be canceled. Setting the report based on the job will not provide the information that is needed.
Please follow these steps to configure the report to show only failed Task information:
1. In the My reports Gui right click on report and or create new Replicate Task report
2. Click next and or enter name of report and description
3. Under "Job Status" make sure to select the box "Completed" (The job always start and ends and that makes the job Completed)
4. Under " Task Status" check the box "Failed"
Please note that this is an example for a customer who wanted to see failed only replication tasks for the past 7 days. Obviously certain things can be adjusted. The main thrust of this KB is that one would think if you wanted Failed task status you would hence also be selecting job status of failed not so.
