The only dumb question is the one that goes unasked.
The command line is your friend.

Backup completion / BACKUP_END on network FileSpaces?
We have two customers that back up remote drives. One client was recently
upgraded to version 188.8.131.52 (from 4.x) and the other is running at
184.108.40.206. Both clients are Win2K servers.
On the client that was upgraded, the backup_end field (Backup Completion
date/time) for that filespace has not changed since the client upgrade
place(03/08). Prior to the upgrade, the completion date/time was updated
with each backup.
On the client that has been at 220.127.116.11, there is no backup completion
date/time showing for the network filespace.
On both clients, messages indicating that the Filespace backup has
completed are logged in dsmsched.log

the APAR database, Richard's ADSM QuickFacts and adsm.org, but have not
come up with a hit. It's always possible that I may not be using the
search terms to get a match.
Thanks in advance,
