VAO comes with a number of reports that allow you to:
- Obtain summary information to document the recovery process. For more information, see Generating Plan Definition Report.
- Check plan configuration before running orchestration plans. For more information, see Running Plan Readiness Check.
- Obtain the results of plan testing and execution. For more information, see Viewing DataLab Test Results and Viewing Plan Execution History.
You can then use the reports to send them by email to auditors and managers, and to troubleshoot issues that prevent the recovery process from completing successfully. Reports are sent as PDF and DOCX files attached to report notifications. To learn how to add recipients to whom notifications must be sent, see Configuring Notification Settings.
Before You Begin
All reports generated by VAO are prefixed by a report template that you select when creating regular replica, CDP replica, restore and storage plans. This template can be edited in-line in VAO using the Microsoft Word integration. When reports are generated, they are appended to the template.
VAO includes 8 instances of the default report template that come in the following languages: English, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, French, Spanish, German. Each default template instance contains example text and must not be used as is — it must be cloned and customized for your specific needs. However, not all parts of the default template can be modified. Some sections are visible but cannot be edited by users. These sections are automatically filled out with the plan information when a report is generated.
