This issue has been solved. See solution.


Is there a scripting way to export the Backup Jobs Historical Logs to disk a long with the Job Name? The solution which I only found is manual process which will take me a lot of time doing it manually.

How to export and save the job history and job logs in HTML and text format in Backup Exec 10.x or higher

Appreciate your reply.

The joblogs are kept in the Data directory in XML format and with a name which does not easily match the job name.  You can copy these text files but the problem would be to convert them to text/html format and to match them up with the job name.

In short, there is no easier way that what is described in the document.

Unfortunately, you are not on BE 2012.  Otherwise, you can use BEMCLI to automate the output of the joblogs.
