How to view logs of old jobs that do not exist in Activity Monitor

Hello,

I was tasked to find logs of some jobs that failed about 15 days ago in Netbackup 8.0 and do not exist in Activity Monitor.

I would like to know if there is any logs in Netbackup that would give me such information. And i do not know from where to start and if it is at least possible or not?

I will be grateful for any help or advice that might answer my request.

Regards

Try All Log Entries report.
It is kept by default for 28 days.

In addition to @Marianne's suggestion, have a look at the bperror command (again by default these logs are kept for 28 days). 

With the bperror command you can specify a client to target (and don't forget to include the timeframe - as the default output only looks back 24 hours).

Hello, and thank you for your support.

I run the BPERROR, and got some results that i couldn't decrypt. If you can help me to read it or understand it a bit, i'd be grateful

The command run is: bperror -client CLIENT -d START_DATE -e END_DATE

But the timestamps, or time and date were not clear to find.

Thank you in advance,

Please add -L (long format) or -U (user format)

Without one of the above options, the default is -l, which gives 'unformatted' output.
