Hi,
answer is no: you cannot do from the server but you can from the client itself.

You need to read the text file: dsmsched.log
which is located by default into the working directory where the dsm.opt and the like are placed (depending on your operating system).
Into that file you can read all single file saved and errors and a summary at the end. Please note that those kind of files grow a lot, so you'd better set a purge retention by date, otherwise it will soon get really big.
hope this helps
