Report both backup and tape jobs

Post by Strecker25 » May 15, 2018 2:20 pm

Hi, probably a simple thing to do but looking for some guidance.

We back up all VM's daily to disk and then have a M/Q/Y GFS tape pool. I want to run a report that shows server name, associated backup job, and the associated tape job. The goal of the report is to verify all production servers are configured with both disk and tape backup jobs.

We're just getting started with Veeamone, any direction is appreciated.

Hi Ryan,

You're on the right track, since Veeam ONE is what you need to obtain desired info.
Please review Tape Backups and Protected VMs reports, also you'll find more reports in the Help Center. Thanks

I did see those reports, and they're great, but they don't give us exactly what I'm looking for. What I want to do is show the VM's that are not backed up by backups or tape. Something like the following, for ALL servers selected via vcenter

VM Name | Backup Job | Backup Job Time | Tape Job | Tape Job Time

with the fields being blank if the machine is not backed up, so we can ensure all workloads are properly backed up to both disk and tape.

If some VMs aren't protected, you will see it in the Protected VMs report, that means they have no tapes also.
This report allows you to see which backups aren't delivering to tapes - VMs with no Archive Copy. Thanks!

My 2 cents to Dmitry's correct reply.
The information about parent jobs of VM can be obtained in a single custom report.
Thanks
