Site Recovery Manager history reports are useful to diagnose Site Recovery Manager Server behavior before and after a failure. You can change the number of history reports to export.
About this task
When you run failover, test, cleanup, and reprotect operations with site A as the protected site and site B as recovery site, you can export history reports for these operations when you collect a support bundle for Site B, the recovery site. The most recent history is fetched directly from the Site Recovery Manager database.
After reprotect occurs, site A is the new recovery site and site B is the protected site. When you run failover, test, cleanup, and reprotect operations, you can export history reports when you collect a support bundle for site A, the recovery site.
Verify that you have Administrator credentials.
Site Recovery Manager must be connected to a Site Recovery Manager database that you can access with valid database credentials.
