Sceduled Task Log File

Question

Hi

I have 2 Xpenology servers, one is a back up of the other. The backup server is on a power schedule for an hour each night and during that time I have a scheduled job running on the main server which is a simple (incremental) rsync of the entire folder structure to the backup - as it is incremental it only takes minutes.

 

I get no notification of this job runnning, being successful or otherwise.

 

Is there a log file created? can I create one? Can I put messages into my scheduled job (How)?

 

Thanks

If you used the Task Scheduler provided by DSM and are using a user-defined script then simply edit the task. A new windows will open with 3 tabs. Select the 3rd tab 'Task Setting'. There you can add an email for notification purposes.

Thanks

I actually knew that option was there but I was too focused on log file messages.

 

I appreciate your help.

You won't find a log if it's a user-defined script.

The email notification is working very well, it is more than a notification, it lists all of the files 'sync'd' by the rsync command - perfect for my needs

 

Thank you
