Log parser for Shadow Protect Backups?

  • Hey Guys,
    Has anyone created a log parser that can decipher the shadow protect logs?
    I have tried, however it does not action when it is supposed to occur (so it doesn't like my variables most likely Stick out tongue)

    Cheers,
    Nathan

  • You need to set up an alert on the event logs > application logs. I have 2 event sets setup:

    ShadowProtect - INFORMATION
    source filter event id
    ShadowProtectSvc 1120
    which i set to monitor information events (these events occur on a successfull backup) and;

    ShadowProtect - ERRORS
    source filter event id
    ShadowProtectSvc 1121
    which i set to monitor error and warning events.

  • Hey,

    We ended up monitoring for success and failures,m resetting once a day.

    I then triggered a script that simply wrote to the log Backup failed or succeeded (two different scripts).

    This way, using a daily report, we can see how many shadow servers there are (another script that simply works this out and writes to the log), how many servers had at least one success for the day, and how many servers had at least one failure. Email this report to someone, and yay.
    You do this under system activity rows in an executive summary.

    Cheers,
    Chris

  • Chris,
    You're doing exactly what we're trying to accomplish. Can you post the scripts you're using?

    Thanks!
