VA for AIX error messaging

Post by philfreund »

Is there any error messaging capability in VAA? I don't see any setup options if there is.

Hi Phil,

Could you please elaborate a bit more what kind of error messaging are you looking for? Currently, you have a possibility to view session status or you can monitor backup or restore process via logs.

Thanks!

Email messages. At the very least, job failure messages. An error message when a job doesn't start because another job is running. A warning when a restore point has been mounted for more than a user-definable number of hours, default 24. I'm sure there are more but those come to mind immediately.

Hello,
email notifications are available today out of the box if your AIX agents are connected to a VBR backup server. If a job fails for whatever reason, you should get an email on that. It is possible to enhance that with pre- and post-scripts today.

I remember you requested deeper integration to cover more scenarios. We are aware of that and as I mentioned in the other thread, some of the things are coming "automatically" with deeper integration. That also includes better job monitoring.

Best regards,
Hannes
