Report on which tapes are full

Veeam Logoby rnchdc » Fri Nov 25, 2016 11:08 am

Apologies if this is simple and I just haven't been able to find it, but how do I get a list of which tapes in my library that Veeam considers to be full? I can take a guess based on how much free space there is, but it would be helpful to be able to see at a glance which tapes Veeam has marked as 'Full'

Hi and welcome to the community!
There is no such a report in VBR, but if you use Veeam ONE, check Tape Media Retention Period report.

you can use powershell command to determine which tapes are full:

Code: Select all
asnp Veeam*
(Get-VBRTapeMedium | Where-Object {$_.IsFull -eq $true -and $_.location -like "slot"}).barcode

I know you want to sell everyone Veeam One. But Veeam One is too expensive if you already have monitoring, and most companies have one (which are also better), and not only for their virtual infrastructure, so most don't want to buy a product for > 10k $$$ just to know what their backup is writing to tape. Maybe you should think about that. Tape index should be searchable from the Enterprise manager. In the moment it's a PITA to find older documents and find the tapes which have the data on them.

McClane,
There was a probability that OP uses Veeam ONE so his goal can be easily achieved.
FR to add it to VBR is also a good one.
Thanks!
