Feature Request - Tape list in job statistics

Veeam Logoby ekisner » Tue Jul 17, 2018 8:22 pm

Would be great if a list of tapes used were displayed in some fashion, in the job summary. Would help with sorting out what got written where, as sometimes jobs don't run according to plan. Just this morning I had a tape with an expiration date, no media set, and zero data on it. Job was waiting for an empty tape, it wouldn't take it until I marked it free, even though it was completely empty and not associated with a media set.

Makes me wonder how other iterations have progressed, and where they've written their data to.

Hi Erik.

Tape job email report contains the information about used tapes. If you want more advanced reporting capabilities, please take a look at VeeamONE tape reports. Cheers!

VeeamONE was remarkably disappointing when I last checked it out a short time ago. Judging by the screenshots in the subpages of the link you sent that hasn't changed. For all the reports it has, the ones that actually provide information missing in the GUI are terribly designed and do not relate that information in a digestible fashion.

It'd be easier to parse the email reports from a service mailbox or just hit the database directly with a script, before I resign myself to VeeamONE.

Hello Erik,
Veeam ONE reports are to be redesigned in the next product update. What would you change and what data are you missing in this reports?
Thanks!
