Bug 7.2.1.4: Existing Job Name overwritten at "Finish" page.

This is FIERCELY annoying!

Every scheduled backup Job I edit has its existing name OVERWRITTEN on the Finish page.

For example, this:
TRAN - SSISDB
becomes this
SQL Backup transaction log backup: SSISDB (created 10/17/2012 1:58:18 PM)
PLEASE STOP THIS - it is nonsensical! :x

Thank you in advance.

  • Hi PDinCA,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We're looking into it at the moment. This is not the intended behaviour. The naming format should apply only to new jobs or jobs whose default names you have not previously edited. I can see how the behaviour you're experiencing is very annoying.

    Apologies, and we'll do our best to fix this.

    I agree this is very annoying. We faced the same problem today, too.
    Every time you have to save the old name and paste it at the end of the wizard to avoiding creating a new job.

    Please, let us know when this will be fixed.
