Backup Exec Job Log Email attachment

Created: 13 Aug 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment



We recently moved our BE12 installation to a different server and have had no adverse problems with the migration other than that the job log attachment in e-mail notifications is not included.


Instead the message "The job log was not available to be included as part of this notification."


Checking the job setup variables I find that the old job log location is still being used which is not valid on the new server and I am unable to determine via the GUI how to alter this variable.


Does someone know where/what config file needs to be adjusted to ensure that the job log directory variable is changed to the new location?


Thank you in advance,

Verify that the following entry is set in the registry with the correct path.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec For Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\Misc\Job Log Path.
