Reports -Schedule a Backup Notification

Hi Everyone.
I have DP 5.5 Runing Cell Manager on Windows 2003 Server.

I configure under Reporting-->Reports-->Backup Notification--Schedule.
a new report that send me via ascii email all the backup jobs for the current day.

For the preview option it shows me what I am looking for, but never send the email.

My question is how I can configure DP to send every day the backup jobs shedule?

I enabled some notifications like end of backup, mount request, etc and it works perfect I am getting the emials for these events so the email engine on the server works fine.

Any idea how I can set my report daily and getting via email.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Reports -Schedule a Backup Notification

Did you collect all your Reports within a Report-Group and schedule the Report-Group (->Properties ->Schedule) to be executed on a daily basis?

Since you mentioned that Notification Emails are sent, i would assume that you did not schedule the Report-Group?

Re: Reports -Schedule a Backup Notification

That was a good point.
I was not collect all reports on a report-grup, now I did I have all reports on a group and I scheduled to run.
I tried but I never got the email.

The send method was set as follow.

send method: external scrip/command
Script: D:\omniback\bin\sendmail.cmd -a

Thanks for your help
