Yosemite Server Backup 8.0 and above
Windows Server Core 2008
Because Windows Server Core has some limitations in certain functionality when compared to other versions of Windows Server 2008, "Common Dialog Boxes" like the "Save As" box in Windows-based applications do not work. For this reason, in the rare instance where Yosemite Server Backup is being used on the console of a Server Core machine and the administrator wants to save a log file locally, the administrator would find that it does not work.
As a workaround, you can do one of the following things:
1. Configure YSB to automatically email a copy of the log file to you whenever a job is completed.
2. Configure YSB to automatically print a copy of the log file whenever a job is completed.
3. Open the YSB Administrator from a machine within the backup domain that is not a Server Core machine and save the file from there.
