Get VMId in Backup/Sessions

Veeam Logoby StigSornsen » Sun Nov 27, 2016 3:58 pm


I would like to check every day if I got some VMs that are unprotected in Veeam.
With Find-VbrHvEntity I get the VMs VMId (Reference property).

But in a BackupJob or BackupSession it seems to me I can only see the VM name. I would like to find a unique identifier. Is that possible some how?
I need a hard link between a VMs state in a BackupSession with a VM from Hyper-V

Thank you very much

Hi Stig,

If you're good with scripting, you can ask for assistance in our PowerShell sub-forums, here is an example of one of the topics that might help. On the other hand, we have a bunch of predefined backup reports in Veeam ONE (part of Availability Suite) > VM Backup Status and Protected VMs.
