PowerShell script

Post by davidkeis »

Hi all.

I just wanted to share my latest PowerShell script creation.

The script does the following:

-Fetches all jobs created in Veeam.
-Goes through them, selecting only Backup jobs
-Executes each found backup job
-Saves status for the job
-generates an email with status for all the jobs, and a total status (if just one job failed the total status will show failed).
-Sends the email.

Here's the script (all comments written in Danish, but I hope you'll be able to understand anyway)

Code: Select all

############################################################
# PowerShell script til backup af VM
#
############################################################

# indlæs Veeam kommando-plugin
Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapIn

# samlet status initieres med "Success" - ændres kun hvis en eller flere backups fejler
$statustot = "Success"

# variabel for opsamling af backup status til email
$statussamlet

# hent info om alle jobs i Veeam
$jobs = Get-VBRJob

# tæller for loop
$i = 0

do{
	# udføres kun hvis jobtype er 'Backup'
	if ($jobs[$i].jobtargettype -eq "Backup"){
		$name = $jobs[$i].name
		
		# tag backup af VM
		Get-VBRJob | where {$_.Name –eq $name} | Start-VBRJob

		# hent status for backup job
		$status = (Get-VBRJob | where {$_.Name -eq $name}).info.lateststatus

		# opdater samlet status
		if ($status -ne "Success"){
			$statustot = "Fejl"
		}
		$statussamlet = "$statussamlet Status for '$name' :  $status `n"	
	}
	$i++
}
while($i -le $jobs.length-1)

# klargør besked til email
$statussamlet = "$statussamlet `n Samlet status:  $statustot"

$emailbody = "Status for Veeam backup af VMware virtuelle maskiner: `n`n$statussamlet"

# send email med samlet status for alle jobs	
$SMTPserver = "smtp.my-mailserver.com"
$from = "VeeamBackupScript@my-domain.com"
$to = "backup-list@my-domain.com"
$subject = "Veeam backup script status: $statustot"

$mailer = new-object Net.Mail.SMTPclient($SMTPserver)
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage($from, $to, $subject, $emailbody)
$mailer.send($msg) 
Hope some of you will find it useful!
