How to Display Job Details

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

In the Monitoring task area, on the Jobs tab, jobs can be grouped by Protection Group, Computer, Status, or Type. By default, jobs are grouped by status. The Quick Search functionality in DPM helps you to quickly find information about single or multiple jobs. To find more information about a particular job, you can use the Details pane. The jobs view can be further refined by including or excluding synchronization jobs, or by using a specific filter. The details vary, depending on the type of job selected. For example, the details for a replica creation job specify status, start time, how long the job has been running or how long it took to complete the job, how much data was copied, data source details, the number of protection group members, and the name of the protection group to which the replica belongs.

For consistency check jobs, DPM displays the number of files scanned and the number of files that were fixed.

To display job details

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Monitoring on the navigation bar, and then click the Jobs tab.

  2. Select the job for which you want more details. The information for the job is displayed in the Details pane, in the lower part of the console.

To display job details using Quick Search

  1. In the Quick Search box that is located below the navigation bar and above the Display pane, type your search text.

    Jobs that contain the text that you typed are displayed in the Display pane with the search text highlighted.

    To narrow your search, type more characters or additional words.

  2. To widen your search to include job information displayed in the Details pane, at the end of the search results, select the Search details also check box that is located next to the Quick Search box. This is a detailed search and will take more time.
