How do I modify my Linux tape backup script to send its logs via email?

It’s prudent to make a backup copy before editing system files. This prevents having to restore a file from tape, and allows you to track changes.
    • Log in as root
    • Open the backup script for editing:
vim /u2/UTILS/bin/snapsave.cfg
    • Find the MAILLIST value, and add any additional email addresses, separated by commas, like so:
  • Save and quit
