Count number of Restore points for each VM in a backup job

Post by arun.kr »

Hello Everyone,

My object to prepare a report that will look like this
JobName VMName JobType LastBackupResult LastBackupDate NumberOfRestorePOints

I started with below code

Code: Select all

$vms = (get-vbrbackup -name aecl*).GetObjects() | select name
foreach($Vm in $vms){
$RP = Get-VBRRestorePoint -Name $vm.Name
$RPCount = $RP | Measure-Object
new-object PSObject -property @{
 "name" = $RP.name | select -First 1 | sort name
 "Restore Point" =  $RPCount.Count
} 
}
and it worked like charm. Then I added few more lines to fetch more details for my report

Code: Select all

$details = @()
$jobname = @("JobA", "JobB", "JobC", "JObD")
$jobs = Get-VBRJob -Name $jobname 
foreach ($job in $jobs){
$vms = Get-VBRJobObject -Job $job
    foreach($Vm in $vms){
    $RP = Get-VBRRestorePoint -Name $vm.Name
    $RPCount = $RP | Measure-Object

    $columns = New-Object psobject
    $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Job Name" -Value $job.Name
    $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Job Type" -Value $job.JobType
    $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Last Backup Result" -Value $job.GetLastResult()
    $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "serverName" -Value $RP.vmname | select -First 1 
    $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Count" -Value $RP.count

    $details += $columns
    }
}
Disconnect-VBRServer
$details | Export-Csv c:\temp\report.csv
Everything is OK except I am not getting VM name in the report. This is how output looks like

Job Name Job Type Last Backup Result server Name Count
JObA Backup Warning System.Object[] 90

One ore thing I would like to add here once script execution finished, I ran only $RP.vmname | select -First 1 and it is showing the VM name.
Not sure what is wrong with the code. We are using VBR V10.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Arun,

Please see below for working code. The main difference is the method you were using to capture VM names. Get-VBRJobObject returns the objects included/excluded as you'd see things when editing a job within the console and this isn't always a VM. To find which VMs were backed up in a job, we look to the backups for that information.

Code: Select all

$details = @()
$jobname = @("veeam", "vmware")
$jobs = Get-VBRJob -Name $jobname
$backups = Get-VBRBackup
$rps = Get-VBRRestorePoint
foreach ($job in $jobs) {
    $backup = $backups | Where-Object {$_.JobId -eq $job.id}
    $vms = $backup.GetObjectOibsAll()
    foreach ($vm in $vms) {
        $rp = $rps | Where-Object {$_.vmname -eq $vm.Name}

        $columns = New-Object psobject
        $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Job Name" -Value $job.Name
        $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Job Type" -Value $job.JobType
        $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Last Backup Result" -Value $job.GetLastResult()
        $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "serverName" -Value $vm.name 
        $columns | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Count" -Value $rp.count

        $details += $columns
    }
}
Disconnect-VBRServer
$details | Export-Csv c:\temp\report.csv
