Tape Library Inventory Email Notification (Feature Request)

Veeam Logoby mikeylikesit » Fri Mar 11, 2016 6:33 pm

I recently began using the tape functionality built into Veeam Backup and Replication v9. Prior to that I used Backup Exec to backup my Veeam backup files.

I created a Power Shell script to kick off a tape library inventory job that I scheduled to run every day. I have e-mail notifications (success, warning, failure) enabled, but I don't receive any emails on the results of my inventory job.

This seems to be basic functionality that the software is lacking. I need to know the status of my inventory job without logging into the server. I would apprecaite it if that could be incorporated into a future feature release.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. My tech support case is 01710021. Thanks.

Since you're inventorying a library via PowerShell, you can assign inventory session to a variable, pass it to Get-VBRSession commandlet, once the inventory is finished, and then generate and send email containing the result of this session. Thanks.

I have a scheduled task to run a tape inventory. How can I add a send email after the inventory runs.
