Tape Backup report - custom date

Veeam Logoby empmark » Mon Oct 06, 2014 12:31 pm

Is there a way to modify the Tape Backup Report to a specific date/date range? We run a full backup to disk-tape once a week, and would like to pull only the tapes that were used from the library on that specific day.
If I could modify the report to just that day, I would quickly be able to know which tapes to pull, and leave behind tapes that have been used for incrementals during the week.

Thanks.

Hello Mark,

For now the report shows only current state of Tape Backups. The report can show you restore points, but I`m not sure that`s what you need.

Could you explain what information you would like to have in the report?
As I understood from your post, you need to know where each backup is kept. What is your goal?

Thank you for the feedback!

Sorry for taking a while to reply...

My goal - we run a full backup each week and want to pull the monthly full backup tapes. (Am looking forward to GF/F/S support in the new version!)
Anyway, since I know the date of the Full Backup-restore point as a Sunday, I would like to be able to generate the report and ignore any tapes with only incrementals on it and only pull the restore point date for the report. We run a separate job for each server after much debate and reading the pluses and minuses from this forum, so having many separate jobs, it takes a bit of time to look at the full report and drill to each one and find what tape a specific restore date is found.

I hope that helps clarify some, and again we are hoping with the upcoming changes we'll have an easier time with a weekly\monthly\yearly tape job option.

Cheers.

And yes, due to a number of great improvements in the upcoming release tape jobs will work faster, safer and more convenient.
