Veritas Backup Exec 16 - How can I change the Log Procedure to log for 1 year

Greetings,

We have a Veritas Backup Exec 16 and system with tapes.

The logs that we see now, are the logs of the previous job only.

We would like to see ALL the previous jobs' logs, and set it to keep logs for all 1-year jobs.

Is this an option?

 

Thank you, 

Dimitris

Hello @IT_Stonebranch 

Yes this is possible - here are a few links that can help:

Configuring database maintenance and security

"Job logs" 
Indicate the number of days to keep job logs in the database before they are deleted.
 
"Keep job history for data on media that have current overwrite protection periods" and "Keep job history for specified number of days"
 
Additionally
How many days will Backup Exec store the catalogs on a media server?
