I can not figure out if I have an AD backup problem or not. Can somebody help me determine if the output from the following command

repadmin /showbackup

looks all right or not. The "Org.Time/Date" is what concerns me because it says 2013-07-11 in that column. However when I force backup replications using

repadmin /syncall /APeD

all looks fine. The AD Replication Status Tool reports no issues either. I have also attached a screen shot of an error message in event viewer saying that backups aren't occurring....

What am I missing here? That date bothers me......


Output from commands above

C:\Windows\system32>repadmin /syncall /APeD
Syncing all NC's held on DC01.
