Here is the location where you can find information of all the logs.

Backup Exec Job Engine Service:

•   Directory = \Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Logs

•   Filenames = <ServerName>-BENGINExx.Log

More information is available on http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/log-locations-backup-exec

Hi,

do you use the client command BACKUP NAS (AIX/Solaris only) or the server command BACKUP NODE?

If you run BACKUP NAS from a scheduled client session then the log will be in your scheduler logfile. Find its location in your system options file (parameter SCHEDLOGNAME).

If you run BACKUP NAS from a commandline session then the log goes to your terminal. If you want to keep it for later use redirect it to a file

dsmc backup nas ... ... ... | tee /path/to/logfile.txt

In either case (scheduled or commandline) never specify -QUIET !

If you run BACKUP NODE from a server session then the log goes to TSM's activity log.

You can recall it in a dsmadmc session with Q ACTLOG NODE=nodename

where nodename is the name of the NAS node specified in the BACKUP NODE command.

For older logs you might have to specify the BEGINDATE/ENDDATE and BEGINTIME/ENDTIME options to search a specific date/time interval.

Run HELP Q ACTLOG for syntax information.
