Hyper Backup Report

Users can create an Excel sheet report of the Hyper Backup tab. The report will be a replica of the Hyper Backup jobs seen in the User Interface, providing users with source and target, and the state of the migration.

In order to create a report, click the Excel icon in the Hyper Backup sub panel:
Hyper Backup Report 2


This will generate a report which looks like the following:

Update Password for Hyper Backup

The Update Credentials functionality will allow users to set a new password for their Hyper Backup projects.

The Update Credentials option is accessible from the right click menu when hovering over a backup project. This option will give you the ability to update encrypted (DES algorithm) passwords and users stored in the config file.

NOTE: check connection is not supported at the Update Credentials point, and if you make an error in username or password when a new backup update or restore is performed, it will fail with an unauthorized error.

Selecting the Update Credentials option from the right click menu will then open the Update Password screen. Enter the username, a new password, and then confirm the new password.

NOTE: If the hyper backup project was originally created via a Claims connection, the Update Credentials options could be available, and users can use this option to set a direct connection specified user and password.

Selecting the Update Credentials option from the backup tab, will update the password for all projects in the backup navigator where the provided user is found. This option allows clients to update certain user passwords for all projects where this password was used, rather than having to do it one by one.
