BARS Backup

Unanswered Question

CM 4.2.3

Can someone tell me the best way to verify if bars is backing up successfully or if it returned errors?

I am used to going into the bars log file and making sure I see

[10:07:19 PM] BARS Scheduler backup operation returned: Success

[11:00:00 PM] BARS Scheduler hourly tracing, current system time = 11:00:00 PM"

But I have another CM Cluster 4.2.3 that does not show these lines at the end of the log file. Thoughts?

To verify if backup is successful perform the following steps:

Open Restore Wizard from BARS menu, Restore>Restore Wizard.

Select Tape in Step 1.

Go to Step 2 by clicking on Next.

If Step 2 displays the server and the application the backup was successful.

This procedure makes no changes to the system so can be safely used to test the validity of the backup.
