Everything about backing up to tape

Enhancement Request: Email notifications / post job activity

Veeam Logoby Stuzoo72 » Thu Nov 07, 2013 2:25 am

Veeam 7 would benefit from the ability for "file copy" and "tape jobs" to be configurable for notifications and post job activities in the same way that backup jobs are.

I can set global settings for email notifications. I set our system only to send on failure and warning.

I can send "Backup Job" notifications on a per job basis. These are sent to any email address i.e. not the global setting. This allows us to receive success notifications only for specific jobs.
I can add a post job "command" in the "post job activity" section of a "backup job".

I cannot set notifications for "file copy" or "tape jobs". I cannot add a post job "command" for "file copy" or "tape jobs".
The functionality is there, just not implemented with these types of jobs.

I would like Veeam to add the "Advanced settings" abilities to all types of job.

Thanks.

As a workaround, you can write a simple PS script that initiates start of a given job (file copy/tape) and, then, add to it whatever lines you want to. This way, once the job is finished, the script will proceed to the so-called “post-job” activity.

Thanks.

Hello all,

I just wanted to add my voice to the Enhancement Request. The functionality to send a message at the end of a specific job is very important to me and my company. I can elaborate further as to why it is so important if necessary.
I know that you have already discussed the issue, but I just need to tell you that I would like a resolution to this issue ASAP. Also, if there is a workaround for it right now please let me know.

Thank you.

Chris.

I'm going to +1 this request as well. The person that physically removes the tapes from the drive needs to know the serial numbers of the tapes, but doesn't need to know the status of every backup job.

Hi, Tom,

We do consider adding email notification functionality to tape jobs in one of the next releases. So, thank you for the feedback; much appreciated.
