Hello everyone, as I recently learned, backup jobs could kill tape jobs
Therefore I wrote a script that is supposed to run pre-job an check if the corresponding tape job is still running and if so wait until this is through (by sleeping for x seconds) That working I wondered if it would be possible to return different information to the backup job.
e.g. if a tape job supplied to a backup job might not exist generate a warning in the log of the backup job
Is this possible somehow? At best I would like to supply different error levels from the pre script (as well as a message) that is then shown in the backup's log

You cannot write directly to job logs. However, there is nothing preventing you from creating a custom logs, writing to it whatever information you need and send it to the corresponding email afterwards. Thanks.

Your voice is heard. Though, I don't think that it's going to be a good idea to let customers directly add information to the session's logs. Being incorrectly formatted or badly written, those operations could easily overfill sessions' view and/or make them unreadable. Thanks.
