Customized monthly tape job report

Veeam Logoby ChristianM » Wed Mar 25, 2015 3:54 pm

Hello,

one of my customers has some tape jobs:
Tape Job weekly: every week, 1 full, 6 incr
Tape Job monthly: once per month, 1 full
Tape Job yearly: once per year, 1 full

The admin has to report a monthly view of all tape jobs per month with success, tapes, date/time, job name. It should be one report per month in html format.
With Veeam One I was only able to generate a report for all tape jobs overall and not per month.

Is there any working solution?

Thanks!

Hello Christian,
Do I understand correctly, you`d like to see in the report all runs of Tape Backup jobs with their statuses for the predefined interval(last month)?
For now, the best advice I can give is to generate Tape Backups report, save it in .xlsx format and delete all superfluous information from it.
Thanks!

Hello Shestakov,

yes, the admin (branch office) needs a report to send it to his management (main office) with all runs of all tape jobs.
The report should include the job name, statuses, used tapes (tape names) and date/time of run.
It should be automated because the admin is heavy overloaded with his daily tasks.

Is there any powershell script or something that's outcome will be an html-report with all the needed information?

Thanks!

I see your use case Christian,
Unfortunately, for now the best report you can use is the Tape Backups one.
I`m not sure if there is a powershell script available to make the described report.
We will take your feedback into consideration for future releases. Thank you!

As to tape PS report, take a look at this discussion. Chances are, you'll be able to get some inspiration there. Thanks.
