Can anyone tell me how I can force ntbackup to log in summary mode when it's invoked from a batch file, rather than full logging? When in interactive mode, it's already set to summary only mode.

(NT4 server SP5)

I think the best you can do is use /e, which specifies that the backup log include exceptions only.  But I'd be interested in other responses.

This is just a little addendum, the /e switch needs to go _before_ the /l switch if a log file is specified otherwise it is ignored. Hope this saves some people who are still stuck on NT a few headaches...
