How to setup Alerts for Sybase Backups ?

Hi Experts,

In help.sap documentation for SCC 3.3 there is a section for "Set Up an Alert for When a Backup Job Fails"

but no additional information is given on how to actually do it. It says that the steps are similar to setting up other alerts but if you open add alerts wizard, there is no option of setting alert for Backups or schedules.

Does anyone know how to do this ?

Thanks,
Kalpeet

    Hi Bret,

    Thanks for your response. I had to write a custom script to run backups triggered through sybctrl so that I don't have to show password in the script, output the entire backup log to a text file and scan through it to check if a backup succeeded or failed. Then i just used "mail" OS command to send an alert mail in the script.

    I've never used Control Center. I'll also note that Control Center has been discontinued
    and is no longer included in ASE patches as of 16.0 SP02. SAP Cockpit is the current replacement,
    there is a request open on the SAP Customer Influence site to make Cockpit more like SCC,

    https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/idea/140646. Voting for the idea improves the chances
    ASE product management will consider the enhancements.

    A possible alternative to using an alert in SCC would be to write an errorlog monitor.
    See http://www.sypron.nl/chklog.html as a starting point.

    Cheers,
