The email backup report is sent when the online backup session completes. It is also sent if the online backup session was canceled in Online Backup and Recovery Manager.

The online backup session can be interrupted if the computer turns off, restarts, or goes into the sleep/standby mode. If the online backup session is interrupted, the backup report will not be sent.

The fastest way to verify that you can receive the email backup reports is to start the backup session and cancel it. For this:

  1. Start OBRM, and go to MenuAdvanced OptionsEmail Backup Reports.

  2. Select Send email reports at the end of backup, and enter your email.
