Feat.ReqView Backup Tapes Content by Date or Date to Content

Veeam Logoby Poweruser » Sat Jul 28, 2018 12:14 am

If i have some tapes written, i just want to check out what ive got written..

it would be nice to have a tree to see it sorted by date showing the contents or contents showing by date.
you can see sth. like this in backup exec.

it should also show if it is a full or incremental backup and which set of tapes are needed.

Do you use backup to tape or file to tape job?
There are Veeam ONE tape reports which has the data.
Thanks!

Tape Job i think because it dont use file job ;-)
But everything is a tape job imo.
The job which backups after an normal repo hyper-v job.

I think veeam one is not the right place for this information. its not a detailed report, its just an important information directly needed for recovery and check if backup worked.

Have you checked Tape Backups report?
It shows what you are asking for.
its not a detailed report, its just an important information directly needed for recovery and check if backup worked.

What are you missing there?
Thanks!

thats the view from job side.
i want a view from tape side.
so i select tape monday and then i want to see:

this tape is a standalone tape (you dont need other tapes for recovery)
latest content is vm1 31.12.2017 vm1 1.8.2018.. each full not synthetic
verify was done by reading the whole tape it can be restored (future feature)
tape was ejected or finished at date:time.
tape was media id .. label monday. first used, last used, written bytes, read bytes, read/write errors hard/soft, backup speed
warning and errors

and all these on tape basis so i dont have to group multiple jobs in mind.
if i write 2 tape jobs. one repo to tape and one file to tape on one day to only one tape.
it should make a summary of all data.
and of course it should show what has been backuped. like vss writer was on in setting xy. sql was backuped,

also if tape is not full it should not overwrite data from last week. instead it should show me that i got data from today and last week.
if its possible to do append until full, then overwrite data not in retention (to be implemented)

actually everything is just on a per job basis.
this is ok if your have just one x to tape job only.

in other words: a nice report to print out for the manager to see what has been backuped on this tape to tell him what he got in his hands if he moves it to the vault.

Hello, this script should show you all files and jobs on all tapes.
powershell-f26/get-tape-content-via-powershell-t22142-60.html#p280337

Hope it works for you.

Correct, this line suggest that the script output gets exported to a .csv file:

Code: Select all
$TapeInventory | Export-Csv $ReportDir\VeeamTapeInventory_$Date.csv -NoTypeInformation


Thanks.
