Restores by state
From Job State -> Restores, you can check all performed restores and their details, such as status, data size, media pool, start/stop time, etc. Restore operations can be filtered by time, by client, by location and by status (successfull, canceled, active, etc.). For detailed description of the filter options, see State Filter.
|You can also check the details of your restores online by using Web UI. For details, see SEP sesam Web UI.
You can change the order of the columns by dragging-and-dropping the selected columns. By selecting a task and clicking the button Properties or by simply double-clicking the task you can view its details. An active task can be canceled by selecting it and clicking the button Cancel. Note that any data transferred before canceling the restore job stays on the target system.
With the button View Mode you can switch between the table view and the tree view.
- Tree view: SEP sesam default view shows the status of individual restore tasks grouped together in a hierarchical view.
- Table view: A simple flat view that shows the status of individual restore tasks one after another.
|In some cases clicking only the Refresh button won't show the updated view. You can clear the GUI cache memory by using a force refresh: press both Shift and Refresh button to reload the view.

Shows the expert options which may have been specified in the restore wizard, if the restore was configured in the advanced UI mode (formerly expert GUI mode).
|The Expert Options button for specifying advanced restore options is available only in advanced UI mode (formerly expert GUI mode). To use Expert Options, make sure your UI mode is set to advanced. For details, see Selecting UI mode.

Main log is the log of the SEP sesam Client (SBC) processing. It records the events that occur during a restore process (startup/shutdown information, errors, etc.) depending on the configured log level for the restore. Note that as an advanced user it is possible to set up a higher log level than default to get more information about specific restore. See Setting Log Level.
The new Download button enables you to download a current main log file or the archive with all files included.
Trace log (lgc log) is the log of the SEP sesam kernel modules. It records detailed information about the restore process depending on the configured log level. Trace logs are typically used for analysis and debugging purposes.
|The Trace log tab is displayed only in advanced UI mode (formerly expert GUI mode). To check the trace log, make sure your UI mode is set to advanced. For details, see Selecting UI mode.
Running SEP sesam with a higher log level than default might be useful when you want to get more information about specific events or modules or when asked by support in the course of diagnosing your specific problem. Note that increasing the log level increases the amount of information being logged and may negatively affect the performance of SEP sesam. For details, see Setting log level globally for SEP sesam kernel modules.
The new Download button enables you to download a current trace log file or the archive with all files included.
Pre log is only shown if you have activated a Pre interface (automatically via GUI: Configuration -> Interfaces) to perform the specific operation before a restore job is started, e.g., stop an antivirus service before the restore. For details, see Using Pre and Post Scripts.
Post log is only shown if you have activated a Post interface (automatically via GUI: Configuration -> Interfaces) to perform the specific operation when the restore session stops, e.g., shutting down a computer after the restore. For details, see Using Pre and Post Scripts.
