script to report failure or warning and reason

Post by macp2153 » Jan 22, 2019 7:46 pm

Hi I am very new to powershell, when I finally get some time I am going to try and teach myself since it seems to be a very useful tool for Veeam backup. I am trying to create a powershell script that will list the warnings or failure from the night before and list the reason. I have found some snippets of code on here and can list the name of the server, the status and the error, I would like to add a timestamp for each job as well. Here is what I have so far:

Code: Select all

asnp VeeamPSSnapin
$vbrsessions = Get-VBRBackupSession | ?{$_.JobType -eq "Backup" -and $_.EndTime -ge (Get-Date).adddays(-1) -and $_.result -eq "warning"}
foreach ($session in $vbrsessions)
{
    foreach ($failedVM in $session.GetTaskSessionsByStatus("warning"))
    {
       write-host $failedVM.Name, $FailedVM.status, $FailedVM.info.reason
    }
}  
output:

Code: Select all

What exactly you mean by timestamp? Job start time? Job end time? Time when VM was successfully processed? Something else?

By the way, have you seen this PowerShell report; might be something you're looking for?

Thanks!

You can get job start time from a from backup session:

Code: Select all

$BackupSession.CreationTime
VM processing start time - from a task session:

Code: Select all

$TaskSession.info.QueuedTime
Thanks!
