"Protected Vms" Report doesn't work with "Vmware Folders"

Post by rurouni » Feb 24, 2015 5:56 pm

Hi,

I would like to generate a "Protected Vms" report based on folders, but it seems the feature doesn't work properly.
Our organisation consists of folders and subfolders.
When i select the folders i only see the ones at root.

Sub-folders are not taken in consideration when the report is generated. It then reports only 20vms. (i guess it considers only the selected folders and not subfolders).

Meanwhile, When i run the report on VI scope, the report seems to work but i can't exclude specific folders here. (Like powered off vms or unwanted ones).

Case # 00814157

Thank you for the support.

Hi,

Sub-folders should also be taken into account for this report. Let me ask our QC team to reproduce it, should be easy to do.

Thanks!

Hmm...couldn't reproduce that with multiple subfolders in the selected scope. Let's see what our support team finds out after looking through the logs.

Support has the same issue while testing in their lab. They advised to update to récent patch 1 which didn t solve the issue.
I m surprises as an évaluation user than noone raised This problem previously. The aim was only to have a list of non backed up vms.
I included screenshots in the case showing That even on the graphical sélection screen. Only root folders of vi infrastructure are shown.

I also confirmed That report considered only vms belonging in thèse root folders.
Thanks
