Feature request: Email notification if tape is full or wrong

Veeam Logoby TommyB » Thu Aug 29, 2013 7:15 am

Hi,

it would be good if Veeam backup could notify me by email as soon as the backup tape is full or a wrong tape is inserted and possibly include information which tape is the next one that could be used so I can first get the correct tape from the safe and then go to the tape device.

"Notify on warning" and "Notify on failure" is activated, by the way :-)

Great.
I have had same request. Maybe with an option to repeat message every x minutes for maximum x times.

Apparently, there has been any improvement regarding email notification in V7 patch 4 - are there still any plans to have this implemented at least for Veeam 8.x? (from my understanding there will be no more patch for v7 before v8 is released?)

Thomas,

Notification should be included in v8, and yes, currently we do not have plans to release another patch. Thank you.
