IASO Backup

The IASO Backup Check uses the Windows Application Event Log on the local device to determine the status of any backups that completed in the preceding 24-hour period. We query the following Event IDs to determine the success or otherwise of the backup jobs.

Event ID



Task Finished Successfully


Task Failed


Complete with exceptions




Task Interrupted

110 Over Quota

The Backup Check passes where the specified number of Success or Show 'complete with exceptions' as successful (includes cancelled jobs) (where configured) Event IDs are discovered.

Since the Backup Checks poll the device for the backup results, the results in N-sight RMM are those reported by the Backup software being monitored. If the reported result is Completed with Errors, Completed with Warnings, or a similar response, we recommend you investigate the device the problem and ensure the Backup software can backup the expected data sets.
