NTbackup runs on two DC's I have in remote locations. NTbackup runs as a scheduled job that pulls it's selection lists from a script (backup.bks). occassionaly the backup will fail and never any reason as to why. This could simply be ignorance on my part and not knowing where to find these errors. But the event logs shows the job starting but never ending. And the log file has nothing written to it.
Does NTBackup write to a log someplace other than event viewer so that I can document the failure for SOX?
We do have a log file written based on when the job starts, whats skipped and when it finishes, which is only good if the backup is successful. I'm looking for the "other" log (should one exist) that reports why the job failed.
