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,

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