All attack reports appear in blank, after a restore DB

We have been reinstalled the NSM and restored a previous backup config. All is working fine except the the reports, all appear in blank without any data.


Any Ideas?

    Assuming that you are speaking of the reports referencing alerts then -


    There are several kinds of Backups you can perform:



    Config Tables

    Event Tables (Alerts and Packetlogs)


    The All-tables includes both the Config tables and the Event-Tables.

    The Config Tables includes the configurations, policies, sensors, filters, acls etc.  but no alert data.

    The event-tables backup includes all the alerts and packetlogs only.


    If you only restored the config-tables backup then the events were not restored so there is nothing to report on.

    Your reports for non-alert-related data should still be working if this was the case though. (Example: The "Version Summary" or "Policy" reports should still work fine.
