Configuring Backup Exec Monitoring Schedule

The default configuration for the Backup Exec service is to monitor backups that occur once a day. If your backups are only once every few days, or once a week, it is important to change the Backup Exec service to scan only after completing a new backup, otherwise the Backup Exec service will report a Failed state, because the Job Timeout value will exceed the default of 24 hours.

To re-configure the monitoring schedule of the Backup Exec service, click the Service Details tab, and select the appropriate schedule from the Scanning section.

Tip: Run a Backup Exec service scan one hour after the backup usually finishes. This will ensure that the service will not scan while the backup is still running.
