Good one!!!

I have a concern,

How can we check the backups.

Is there any tools available Or do we have to text them manually

Hello All,

I have a simple script that queries MSDB database sysjobs and sysjobhistory from a simple ASP page. Remove the appropriate quotes if you run it from query analyzer

strSQL = "select " & _
" job_name = Substring(sj.name,1,20)," & _
" step_name = Substring (' '+sjh.step_name,1,30)," & _
" sjh.run_status," & _
" sjh.run_date," & _
" sjh.run_time," & _
" sjh.run_duration" & _
" from msdb.dbo.sysjobhistory sjh, msdb.dbo.sysjobs sj" & _
" WHERE (sj.job_id = sjh.job_id)" & _
" and run_date >convert (int,(convert (char(8),getdate()-3,112)))" & _
" ORDER BY run_date desc,run_time desc"

My script connects in a loop to my several servers and gives me a table of job completions in my browser. You may write a simple VB script that does the same and schedule it. You can also use FileSystemObject to check what date and time the files in the backup directory are and alert you using email if the dates are incorrect.

I have another comment on this article. It is very important where you put your backups to. You may backup transaction log every 15 min but your server is backed up to tape once a day. Here you go. The standard advice is to put a backup on the separate physical drive (not a different partition, but different physical drive or array). Good advice. Exceptions: I personally had a case when both (2 ) RAID 5 arrays failed at the same time. Another scenario when you really have 1 physical array. My strategy in this case is to create a second (or next) step to the job to copy backups to a network location rigth after they are completed. I use just regular Copy command OR you can use you server scheduler to do that.
