Tape Offload Question

Veeam Logoby Khue » Fri Aug 29, 2014 1:23 pm

Is there a way to see what objects are on a tape? I have a set of tapes that are offline and I want to see what objects I backed up to them.

Are you able to right-click these tapes in Veeam B&R console, select Properties and review the list of files on the Files tab?

I believe there are actual VM backup jobs on these tapes. I went through the tape history and I eventually found the report for the particular backup. I can identify the tapes from that html report, but I was just thinking it would be nice if I could go from the tapes themselves. The current way requires me to remember or at least have an idea about what backup job wrote to those tapes.

Are you talking here about backup to tape job? If so, have you tried a predefined Veeam ONE report called “Tape Backups” that lists VM restore points along with the tapes they reside on; might be exactly what you're looking for. Thanks.
