  1. Specifying terms of failed jobs


    Servers: Backup Exec 8.6 on Win2k
    Clients: Win2k

    I have a few laptop users who move from location to location. In order to
    prevent their laptops from being backed up over the WAN, I've enabled the
    specified network feature so that if they're not in their usual location,
    another backup server can back them up.

    The problem is that if they're not at their main location and their main
    backup server doesn't back them up, it reports a failed job. I don't want
    this to count as a failed job. Is there a way to specify exactly what constitutes
    a failed job?

    Nope. You're stuck with what ever Veritas decides constitutes a "failed"
    job.
