2871262 - DB13 Backup completion status is incorrect


Although tcode DB13 scheduled backup jobs fail with RC != 0, they're reporting a completion status of "Finished successfully" in DB13 Action Details and return code 'OK' in the Dbacockpit DBA Log'.

For example, the following job log shows that job SAPJOB failed due to JCL error.

But  'Jobs > DBA Log'   shows it ran okay
