Just wondering how you make Amanda Enterprise email for only failed backups (or backups with warnings etc...)?
At the moment it spams out every single backup, successful or otherwise and it's easy to miss a failed backup in the piles of emails.

Thanks in advance.

Please set

send-amreport-on error

in amanda.conf file for the backup set.

Thanks - is there no way to do this via the web interface?!
Manually editing lots of backup sets is a bit of a clunky way to do it.

You cannot set this in the UI.

You can add it to /etc/zmanda/zmc/zmc_aee/amanda.conf. It will get used by all new backup sets.

Just a quick comment/question...

All "new" backupset? Not the ones already configured?
