Feature Questions

Post by cb1ocker » Aug 02, 2018 2:13 pm

AD Authentication:
I assume there are plans to add AD authentication? Using a single shared admin account is obviously not ideal.

Veeam One:
Currently there is no way to add the AHV cluster to Veeam One in any way (as far as I can tell). Is this coming in a future update?

Job History:
I'm noticing in the History tab on the Veeam B&R server the AHV jobs show up as one line per protected VM instead of as a single job, which is different from how all other jobs show in history. Are there plans to standardize that in some way?

Thanks!

Also would like success/fail email notifications for when jobs have completed.

Yes, only one admin account for the Nutanix Proxy Appliance is too less and eMail notifications of B2D-jobs done by the Proxy Appliance to a VBR repository is a must have!

Thank you for the feedback.

We have these items on our todo lists for improving the proxy. Not all these features may make the next release.

Hi everyone

We are integrated Veeam Backup & Replication Console but email notifications not send. Could you please add this feature?

Would like to tag onto what @crackocain and @jarvismeierbrt6hc mentioned - email/SMTP notifications are really a critical feature, and I'd love to see that added in the next version.

I too would appreciate email notifications being added. It's a very important feature.

Email notifications are a must. Essential to any true backup solution.

[MERGED] Feature Request - Backup report

Hi.

I would very much like it was possible to set up email notification when your job has been run.

Hi Jonas - welcome to the Veeam Forums.

There is this capability to notify on backup jobs running, the result looks like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ybatg1o383cyv ... z.png?dl=0

If that would work - see this: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95

Hello Rick,

Is your post related to AHV?
I have email notifications configured on our veeam server, but I only get notifications from the configuration backup.
None of the proxy jobs are sending notifications.

There must have been sort of confusion - you're right in saying that the said notification is not supported by AHV jobs at this moment. Thanks!

In addition to adding e-mail notifications, how about some SNMP hooks so we can monitor status with tools such as Solarwinds? We have a regular occurrence where the proxy gets hung every 10 days or so causing snapshots to not get deleted from our Nutanix environment. Currently we have to manually monitor by logging in to both Veeam & Prism on a daily basis. I didn't have to manually monitor my backup status in 1999 and shouldn't have to do this in 2019.

For the hung issue, please report this to the support team so it can be investigated. They may ask for logs after you have an event/issue again.

Agree regarding Email notifications for proxy jobs along with the SNMP hooks.

1 more for notifications...going to check if backups are working multiple times per day is not a very effective solution and checking 20 times or more in a 24hr period is just unrealistic.

Notification Feature

Post by cruggeri » Jan 31, 2019 9:52 pm

FYI, I was able to use SSRS to tap into the veeam DB and create a "down and dirty" rudimentary report of the last x number of backups that ran and whether they were successful. I then created a subscription to be emailed daily.
Not optimal method, but, it works until Veeam can develop a nicer, more robust solution.

thanks for the heads up, we have "email notifications" for backup jobs on our list.

Best regards,

Perfect. Thanks for the feedback! This works, but it doesn't work the way Veeam notifications do...it would be a fair amount of work to make that happen...I would rather just wait for yours : )

Thanks for this I personally would like to hear more and if you can ping me an email with the steps in which you achieved this that would be useful.

Notifications are planned for the next release of Veeam Availability for Nutanix AHV. More details to follow on this in the next few months.

[MERGED] Notifications

Post by homerjnick » Mar 25, 2019 11:37 am

Hi,

I've recently setup Nutanic AVH Proxy for Veeam and backups are working but how do I get notifications sent for these jobs?

I can't see anything in the settings.

Nick

Just so you know - we've created a notification script that can be used, until the feature is implemented in the product. Thanks!
