Notify on tape waiting

Veeam Logoby dweide » Mon Dec 08, 2014 8:53 am

When a tape Job requests a new tape to be inserted into my library the only notification is a small Icon in the taskbar.
How can I obtain a notification by email (or SNMP trap) about this wait condition?

Dweide,
Currently there is no such notification; it will be added in the upcoming patch.

For now a simple PS script checking the state of job might do the trick for you. Thanks.

The first patch Dmitry was talking about has been just released; might be worth updating. Thanks.
