Responsibilities
Daily monitoring of backups jobs from three separate solutions, including but not limited to Legato Networker, Backup Exec, 8.6 through 12.5, Tivoli Storage Manager, and Unitrends 4.1. Monitoring responsibilities include watching jobs complete, troubleshooting jobs which fail, and verifying all backups complete successfully. Multiple monitoring tools are utilized in the environment, including email notifications from backup software instances, and the use of Autosys Alarm Manager.

The software that is used Im not too worried about, they offer a month of training. I just want to get up to date on some things that may be asked during the interview that may come up in regards to the other requirements in the job description.

Thanks for any advice!

You wouldn't. She might. ;)

Yeah, just be prepared to demonstrate any skills that the description says. If it's a preferred skill, you don't have to worry about it quite as much. But it's better to know those too.
