NetWorker Daily Status Report

Unhappy with the overly verbose native EMC NetWorker savegroup completion reporting and the limited formatting options available in the native html output provided by gstclreport I decided to quickly create a powershell script to produce a a better looking daily status email.  Below is ver 0.1 of the script.

Note:  In the powershell source included below all the variables are in the source for simplicity purposes. In my implementation a large number of the defined variables are used across a wider library of powershell scripts so the variables are actually contained in a separate variable file which I dot source to set the variables in the global scope.

The script delivers via email a message which contains a formatted html report in the body of the email as well as a csv attachment containing the raw data.  The following is a sample email:nwreport1

  1. Like the powershell version of this script. Modified it with my settings but the email and csv file does not return any data. If I view the report in the NMC there is information there. I tried adding more variables to the $gstclrpt line to include Status, Client Name, Group Name, and date range to match those in the NMC. Any thoughts on what the error might be?

  2. ## report gen vars
    # note: JAVA_HOME must be set in gstclreport.bat script
    $gstclrpt=”D:\EMC NetWorker\Management\GST\bin\gstclreport.bat

    how to set this
