You can view and export reports about each run of a recovery plan, test of a recovery plan, or test cleanup.

Recovery plan histories provide information about each run, test, or cleanup of a recovery plan. The history contains information about the result and the start and end times for the whole plan and for each step in the plan. You can export history at any time, but history always contains entries only for completed operations. If an operation is in progress, the history appears after the operation completes.

SRM preserves history for deleted recovery plans. You can export history reports for existing and deleted plans. To export a history report for a deleted plan, select a site, then select Monitor > Recovery Plans History.

To export a history report for an existing plan, follow this procedure.


You ran or tested a recovery plan, or cleaned up after a test.

  2. On the Monitor tab, click History.
  3. (Optional) Click the Export icon for the recovery plan history for a specific time period, recovery plan run, test, or cleanup operation.
    You can save the recovery plan history as HTML, XML, CSV, or MS Excel or Word document.
