Hi, I have been reading some posts about monitoring Windows Server Backup and as far as I got no one had a working solution (or at least not suitable for me).
Is there anyone who got this to work without having to go through too much trouble? I think I found some sort of solution myself after looking around at different ideas here, but it requires a creation of an task in task scheduler on every server wich seems like a bit of work if you have around 200 of them (not in the same domain).
My solution was: 1. Create a task in task scheduler that looks for event ID's (5,8,9,17,22,49,50,52,100,517,518,521,527,528,544,545,546,561,564,612) in the backup-operational event log. 2. Make the task create a event in Application event log named "WS BACKUP MONITORING". 3. Create a Event log sensor that will be considered Down when it finds the above event.
This is the basic idea, there are some more issues with this.
My question is, does anyone have a way of monitoring Windows Server Backup with only the configuration of a sensor - not any configuration on the server it self? :)
