Updated Veeam Backup Report via PowerShell

Post by VTsnow » 4 people like this post

Earlier this year I posted a handy little script that I whipped up for myself, that essentially pulled in VM's from a vCenter and matched them off against VBR jobs. The result was a easy to read "gap report". https://virtualvt.wordpress.com/2019/06 ... owershell/

Last week I made enough progress to post v2 of that script. The script is now parameterized so it's able to be run from the command-line. As you can tell from the title of my blog post, my purpose is to provide information to auditors, so at the moment there are three main reports, screenshots below.

If you try this script out, please let me know. I'd love to continue working on it, but only if others find utility.
Cheers!

Thanks for sharing, Scott!

Please consider adding this to VeeamHub as well. It'd make an excellent contribution!

Nice work Scott, you should put in a pull request to roll it into VeeamHub.

Hi, this script looks great!

Are there any plans to make this work for Hyper-V in anyway? I'm struggling to find a reporting script which will work with VMM especially for a gap report

Cheers, James

You could just modify the existing script to pull the VM information from Hyper-V, rather than VMware.

This would be a simple modification to just replaced the code for the connection to Hyper-V, rather than VMware, then the same "Foreach ($GapVM in get-vm)" would give you results for Hyper-V.

Alternatively, you could replace 'Get-VM' with a variable where you have gathered your VMs to be reported against.
