Setup email notification for backup jobs

By michael.a.patterson ·
I was assigned the task of creating a script or task that would capture the daily backup jobs in a Netbackup and Backup Exec environment, and send an email notification out to the prospective SA's.
NetBackup is ver. 5.1 MP4, on a Windows 2003 Enterprise platform. Backup Exec is ver.8.60, on a Windows 2000 platform.

You can get very creative and mail out of scripts or, and this is what I mostly do, you can use a freeware SMTP mailer.

I've use one called "postie" since (well, a very long time) in batch files, kix scripts and vbscripts that SMTP relays via my Exchange front-end. Just make sure that you set up the server that's running your SMTP mailer as a permitted relay host on you Exchange and you can send attachments, etc.

Well, for 150 points, I can offer the suggestion "Read the Manual"

What a bozo, sometimes the manual doesn't explain everything and were created by non tech people in a sanitized lab environment. Sorry but no point for you.
