List vm from backup job with list of exclusion

Post by Obie »

Hi,
I try to get the list from a veeam backup job with this :

$Job = Get-VBRJob -name "MY_JOB"
$Objects = $Job | Get-VBRJobObject
$Objects.name

In my veeam job I use the inclusion of a vCenter Datacenter. In the exclusion I use Tags on vm. When I try to list with powershell I would like to obtain a list of vm dynamically processed. Instead of that I get the list of tag ... Do you know a way to have these informations ?

Thanks for your help !

Hi Obie

I'm not sure that this is possible in Veeam. I couldn't find a way.
You may query the inclusion/exclusion tags with powershell and then use PowerCLI to get all VMs assigned to those tags.

Let's see of one of my colleagues has another idea.

Best,

Hi,

It's not possible to get the child objects of hierarchy objects like Tags at the moment with Get-VBRJobObject.

You can pass the returned tag name to Find-VBRViEntity with the -Tags parameter, and I believe it should now return the VMs with such tags along with the tag itself.
