Ops Manager and Emailing reports

Hi All using the latest version of Ops manager (DFM)I have some reports scheduled to send to me via email however I do nto get any reports sent to me. Instead I get "failed" with the following message:

Error reading output file: Reason: The report schedule did not generate any output. 

Perhaps I scheduled th report wrong? Its basically a volume growth report for my vmware volumes.

Any help hints tips or tricks would be appreciate!

Thanks Much!

If you browse into Ops Manager / Reports / Customer Reports and run your reports do they return data OK or is it just the scheduled reports which fail?

Hi Brendon,

Based on your recommendation I ran a test report in custom and it displayed data with no problems.

Thing is the documentation I have found the admin guide talks about all these things but doesn’t necessarily walk you through on how to set things up. I have found some things on the net to assist but I would get that error mentioned.

Any other tips?

Re: Ops Manager and Emailing reports

I would test the theory that DFM running a scheduled report uses the DFM service account and when you log into DFM, it runs the report as you.  Try logging onto DFM with the service account and run the report.  My guest it does not have permission to view the data.

My other idea would be report requires a variable setting before it can run.  When you run the report manually it asks you to enter the parameter and selects the required data to report on.  This does not happen on the scheduled report and hence no data returned.

Re: Ops Manager and Emailing reports

Are you using Windows ?? What version of OpsManager are you using ??

Also, can you look at the option reportsArchiveDir and ensure that the path that is mentioned there is exist.

"dfm options list reportsArchiveDir"

I am running this on Windows 2K8 STD 4 bit. DFM version 4.0.1.7536 (4.0.1)

And are you saying run that command on the filer ? Which I did and there is an error as in that command doesn’t exist.

Fyi the filers are 6280

Re: Ops Manager and Emailing reports

No, you have to run this command on your DFM server.

Re: Ops Manager and Emailing reports

Pardon the ignorance..

Here you go:

C:\>dfm options list reportsArchiveDir

Option            Value
reportsArchiveDir D:\Program Files (x86)\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\reports\

Re: Ops Manager and Emailing reports

In your post, I didn’t see any values there for reportsArchiveDir option.

Can you execute the command once again and paste the output.
