I have;backup ,rebuild Indexes , Update Stats and few other jobs like space alerts, replication jobs etc which run frequently on SQL Server 2102-SP2, Build Number:11.0.5058.0

and I do not see any log sucess/Failure for few jobs :

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_help_jobhistory 
@job_name = N'Database_Full_Backup_Daily11pm' ;
GO--NO log of Sucess or fail, 

but the job ran and I see backup files stored on my backup location and I see the database last backup taken date is yesterday 11pm

and there are no other backup jobs are running at all My backup job uses a custom script not maintenance plans Owner of the job are same for all jobs all jobs are enabled. I do not see the history via Right click on job -view history also. I see agent-properties-history--Limit size 1000, 100 chosen

but for few like below, I see history

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_help_jobhistory 
@job_name='Replication agents checkup'
GO----I see history

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_help_jobhistory 
@job_name = N'Distribution clean up: distribution' ;
GO----I see history

what could be wrong here ? any ideas experts? Please help

  • To me it sounds like, you may have probably reached your max log size limit. How long have you been running this job? You probably may want to setup a maintenance task to cleanup your history log. – FutbolFan Jul 23 '15 at 18:25
