At the Client Computer Level

  4. Select the job status from the Mark job as drop-down list to update the job if the rule is matched.

    Specify the criteria that you want to use to monitor the failed files:

    • To update the job status based on the percentage of failed files, click the Percentage of failed files is more than check box and enter the percentage of files that should fail during backup to activate this rule.

    If both criteria are specified, you can choose to activate this threshold rule when one or both criteria match by using the Apply threshold when n rules match option.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Click OK.

    You can add one more threshold rule for the selected agent. Make sure that the status to mark the job is different than the one you previously set.
