How can I look up if ArcServe is currently running? In "Quick Start" -> "Job Status" -> "Activity Log" I can only see the Generic Logs. There is no entry for the current day (each day a backup should be made). If I look at the tape the LED only shows Ready. In "Infrastructure Visualization" I see two nodes with the status Not Attempted.

Can it be that the current backup doesn't show up in the logs?

The log file should be current even if the job is running. Go to the Job Status Monitor from your ArcServe Dashboard. You should see a visual display of the jobs that are RUNNING, ON HOLD or READY. This is the easiest way to find out if a job is running.
