Veeam Powershell for cashback

Post by aurelien-beneteau »

We protect VMware vSphere, Miscrosoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV and Windows & Linux servers using agents.
We would like to extract chargeback information, so the goal is to have a one-month schedule.
Based on this script : https://github.com/smitmartijn/public-p ... bSizes.ps1, we extracted the storage information to do the chargeback.
Perfect but can you help us to find more details about the command GetAllStorages() ? What are the available parameters ? We don't find details.

In addition, we would like to have one-month schedule for chargeback? How to get this information? We were thinking of Get-Date command but not sure it's the solution.

Hey @aurelien-beneteau,

First, though I doubt I need to inform, remember this is an unsupported .NET method, and these should not be relied on in scripts as they can and do frequently change.

GetAllStorages() and its sibling GetAllChildrenStorages() accept no arguments, and from my testing, as of v10 you want to use GetAllChildrenStorages(); the first method doesn't seem to return outside of Hypervisor backups (read: VMware and HyperV) and _some_ agent backups (I did not dig deep, but for my custom private scripts, I use GetAllChildrenStorages())

For getting a specific month, you can use the CreationTime property of the storages returned and add some code like:

Code: Select all

		$StartPeriod = Get-Date -Month $MonthForReview -Day 1 -Hour 0 -Minute 0 -Second 0
		$EndPeriod = $StartPeriod.AddMonths(1).AddSeconds(-1)
I use this in a scheduling script outside of Veeam; my script accepts an [int]$MonthForReview as a parameter and it warns users to enter a value 1-12, then you can just do something like:

Code: Select all

$Storages | Where-Object {$_.CreationTime -ge $StartPeriod -And $_.CreationTime -le $EndPeriod}
Does this help?
