How to check what databases have been successfully backed up by Exchange policies

Created: 10 Jul 2013 • Updated: 06 Aug 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi!

good day!

We've already completed creating policies for our exchange servers.

We already ran the backups and were successful.

I'd like to verify via logs if all my databases were successfully backed up.

How do i check this and where should I go?

Appreciate the help in advance.

Thank you.

Best way to test is to restore it. Check in the restore and check if all the datastores are showing fine. You could try restoring them to RSG or o dindividual mailbox restore as test to make sure everything is good.

You can also check form netbackup console...

Reports---All log Entries  (By Client Name)

Before break-up, make sure you have a good backup.....  ;-)

If you want to pin it down more then make a note of the job ID's of your exchange backups and run:

bpdbjobs -report -all_columns -jobid 1234,1235,1236

This will pipe the results out just for those jobs

There was also a way to get it in OpsCenter - see this post:
