  • NTBackup script for automatic send backup report to a emal id.

    We would like to use NTBACKUP as a cheap solution to backups. Scheduled to run every evening is easy. However, we also would like the .log file to be emailed . Probably best to use a batch file or script - any ideas?

    1. We have around 50 servers,
    2. We don't have any tape drive.
    3. we are keeping backup to a different network path.

    I need to login to each server everyday and take backup and check the backup report daily, instead I want a script whick will run automatically in a particular time and send me the report ( Success / Failure) to a email ID.

    With "around 50 servers", I would suggest the last thing you want is a "cheap" solution. Consider the cost of restoring things if there is a major disaster!
    I would suggest you look at an enterprise class product which NTBackup (although one of my favourite programs) is definitely NOT

    However, a quick does give the following link which appears to offer much of what you want:

    Some editing of the Italian will be needed!

      While not quite what you're looking for, it would be incredibly simple to automate your backups and have the logs stored in a central share. Are you really running manual backups on 50 servers?

        Hi,

        I am regularly taking backup of 17 servers and it is manually. i tried to make it automatic but my manager do not want to do that. He wants all backup log to be emaild, again he is not ready to go for a standard backup software.

        Please advice as i am frustrated to take backup manually everyday.

          If your manager doesn't want backups to be automated though, then your script isn't going to be accepted anyway...

          If he insists that your backups must be run manually then I would probably suggest you use something like psexec from your desktop to have the backup job started on each server. Makes your life easier and satisfies your boss in that backups are still being run pseudo-manually.

              In my experience, managers are stuck in the past, as they've not been "hands on" for quite some time. Maybe you could find a day's training for him on data security best practices to help him come to terms with automation of an essential business function
