           a. If last backup finish date is < 1 day, status is Green.   

           b. If last backup finish date is < 7 day, status is Yellow.   

           c. In other cases, it will be Red.

2. Is it possible to change\configure these intervals?

Ans:-  This option is not configurable as it is hard coded into the product.

 

3. Does the SCSP only record the status of backup job by SQL server itself? Does SCSP renew the backup status if the backup is taken by a third party software?
