If a remote backup job fails, the system needs to retry. Otherwise it's possible that a remotebackup never takes place.
This could occur in the case of remote frontends that are powered off when the backup takes place.

LinHES-system: lh_system_backup_job. reworked the system backup job to support detection of failed remote copy.
If a failed remote backup copy occurs, it will write the filename to a file and then setup a cron job to attempt to retransfer the file every hour until success. This is mostly needed in case func is down, or is the remote system is powered off when the first attemp is made.
