Duplicate results

Veeam Logoby Avigrace » Thu Jul 01, 2010 2:15 pm

I am trying to create a report that shows Virtual machines along with what disks they have and how big the disks are etc..

I am using Base Report Pack>Infrastructure Report (template)

Object Type: Virtual Machine
Columns: Name, Virtual Disk: Label, Virtual Disk: Size

When I run this report it comes back fine, however if I then add in Partition: Name, or another column it duplicates my results, I am new to Veeam reporter and would appreciate any advice on this.

Ben, can you share a screenshot so that we could better understand the issue? Thanks!

I have used a custom filter to just show the one VM, and also masked the names.

Hi Ben, this looks correct to me, as you probably have 2 paritions on the same virtual hard disk? Please confirm.

No the VM has 2 disks attached and each has only one partition. If you look at the second screenshot it shows there being a C drive with 20Gb and another C drive with 5Gb.

This server has a C drive of 20Gb and an E drive of 5Gb

Ah, thanks for describing the environment in mored details - it helps. I did not read the report correctly first time. I will ask developers whether it is possible to create this report without having duplicate lines.

Hi Ben, I have talked to developers and found that this limitation is caused by the fact that currently it is impossible to match virtual disks (VMDK) into logical disk (guest partitions) by the means of VMware API. So such duplication is to be expected for this report unfortunately.
