Arcserve 9 - setting up email notification of overnight Backup status

Hi,

We have several servers all running Arcserve 9 with tape backups of the data running overnight. Every morning we are currently manually logging into every server to check the status of each backup check. My question is can this information be produced automatically by enabling Alert Manager?

I've created a mail-enabled service account in Alert Manager on the majority of our servers, but can I use this to email details of the overnight tape backup jobs we have running and, if so, how?

The information we need is:

1/ The success or otherwise of the nightly backup job
2/ The amount of data backed up
3/ The number of errors/warnings produced

I'm assigning a top points score on this as it would save us a lot of hassle in the long run! Any ideas would be greatfully received.

Matt

Hi mgharbourne,

Do you have a mailserver like exchange running?
If so, please check the job setup. (right-click it and choose properties)

Under "Settings" you'll find "Notifications"
On the right window click "New"
There select "person"
Enable SMTP and type in your e-mail address.
Click OK to save.

Then, tick the checkbox in front of the added user.
Now, you can select if you'd like to attach the complete job logfile by ticking the checkbox in front of "Include job log with a notification to an e-mail or printer recipient"

Is that what you where searching for?

Greetings,

LucF

mgharbourne,
Whoa! I appologize, I've mistaken Arcserve for Veritas :(

Seems like it's almost the same with Arcserve though, please see this similar question:
