  • Backup No-Run in Last 30 days
    Posted: 07-10-2019, 11:46 AM

    Hi All, I just installed SP15 and it appears CV changed what the definition of "No-Run" with a Job Status. 

    I need to setup a report for our help desk which emails them on a monthly basis a list of computers which have not had a succesful backup job in the last 30 days. This way, they could follow up with end users who have not had succesful backups.

    The problem is, when you choose "No-Run" it appears to only show computers which tried to run, but didn't because it had a job already running.

    Thoughts and opinions quite welcome!

    Hi Sean 

    Can you please confirm what version you were previously on

    From the review of the Documentation (, it looks like the "No-Run" was only introduced in SP12

    Another consideration you can look into is configuring Alert:

    • When the Data Protection alert is configured as a subscription-based alert, this criterion is used by default to notify laptop users when no backups are performed.
    • There is a default alert that can be enabled that has 4 days set. Thsi one allows for that # of days to be whatever you specify.
    • This will generate an alert that can be tracked via email or NOC and added to a database or whatever.

    By doing the above you can minimize the need of report, but still have the information sent to end-user to inform them about no successful backup

    Hopefully this helps
