Configuring Job Manager settings

About Job Manager

The Job Manager process (nvjobmgr) runs on the NetVault Backup Server and manages the execution of a job.

The Schedule Manager starts the Job Manager. A single instance of Job Manager runs for each job until the completion of the job. The Job Manager reports on the job run status and exit status. This process coordinates with the Data Plug-in and fetches the required information from the NetVault Backup Server. It is also responsible for sending drive and media requests to the Media Manager process.

You can modify the Job Manager settings from the Change Settings page.

Configuring default settings for Job Manager

On the Configuration page, click Server Settings.
Under Services, click Job Manager. In the Job Manager dialog box, configure the following settings.

Job Keep Alive rate

Keep-alive messages are used to verify network connection between two NetVault Backup machines and to keep this connection intact. The keep‑alive rate setting controls how often keep-alive messages are sent between the Job Manager running on the server and the Data Plug-in running on a client.

The default value is 5 minutes. To change the interval, type or select a new value. The keep-alive rate is specified in number of minutes.

CLI utility nvjobcreate will return exit status

By default, the nvjobcreate utility returns the Job ID on success and “0” on failure.

When you select this check box, the nvjobcreate utility returns the exit code “0” on success and “1” on failure.

To determine the Job ID number when the nvjobcreate utility is configured to return the exit status, you can use the -jobidfile option. The Job ID number is written to the specified file. For more information about this option, see the Quest NetVault Backup CLI Reference Guide.

Click Apply to apply the new settings and close the dialog box.
