we have a server whos backup has been failing for the last few weeks and weve been trying to sort it out. on closer inspection, the error message pointed to a server service interuption by a reboot or service restart.

eventually i checked the script logs. pending scripts shows only three scripts

however every day at 4:55 AM these two scripts run, but they are not in pending scripts

Reboot Rescan 1 4:55:08 am 26-Aug-09 Success THEN *System*
Reboot Rescan 2 4:55:08 am 26-Aug-09 Success THEN *System*

we have no idea what is scheduling them or why they are running, is there an easy way to find out ? does anyone know what the scripts are?
