Job History - FAQ

How is the recovery history of stub recalls for user-defined archive set or other partition displayed?

When viewing the Recovery History of Stub Recalls (via the Stub Recall Jobs tab), it will be displayed as originating from the defaultArchiveSet and the first Partition even if a user-defined Archive Set or other partition were used during the recall.

Can I view the stub recall job history for File Archiver for Windows recall jobs initiated from the physical node of a cluster?

No. The stub recall job history cannot be viewed for File Archiver for Windows recall jobs initiated from the physical node of a cluster in cases where only the driver is loaded on that node. However, browse recovery jobs which are initiated from the virtual server can still be viewed in job history. To obtain statistics on stub recall jobs in this scenario, we recommend running the Stub Recall Summary Report. In order to see data in the Stub Recall Job Summary Report, you must configure the nDMRSendFileStatus additional setting. For instructions, see How to Generate the Report.
