After a little testing, I see that invintorying my tapes is not going to bring back the VM restore point information. To get this, I will need to recover all of the the data from the tapes and import the backups before I can see VM level backup information.
This means if I want to restore a file from a VM that is no-longer on disk, I have to hope I know which group that vm was in at the time of backup,(which I don't), and restore all of the VBK and VIB files in that backup chain to disk. Then import those backups. Once that is done I will have the information I need to see if the file I need to restore is even in that backup chain.
To make sure I have all of the information that I need, which I had before recovering my server from backup, I would have to bring back 130 tapes and recover all of the data on them to disk and import those backups. This would take over a month of my time if I were able to commit all of my time to it.
I think this is my fault for thinking that Tape is a second tier of backup media. It is clearly meant to only be a second copy of backups that will always be on disk. I can never put long term archives on tape and expect veeam to help me figure out what is on those tapes once the data is no longer on disk.
