Would you please consider adding the computer's local IP address to the backup log that is generated and emailed after a job completes?

We have a lot of laptops that back up to the local NAS, but when the laptops are "travelling", we get failure emails (of course). It would be nice to be able to look at the IP Address in the log file, so we could see that "oh yeah, that guy's out the office, that's why it failed", rather than have to wonder if the failure is do to some other cause we should be running down.

Anybody else think this would be a good idea?

Thanks,

Ralph

Hello @kimco and thanks for the great suggestion. This is just to let you know that we've added a new Email Content parameter {PCIPv4} to the latest Reflect release, so that you can add the workstation's local IP address to backup emails.

Best regards
