Viewing Media Sets

Post by kennocha »

Is there a place to view all the media sets?

For instance, every Tuesday, I want a new media set created, then the old media set will be sent offsite for DR.

I want to be able to pull up all my media sets and see what media is in them. I am not seeing this ability.

Hi Stephen,

Looks like it is a good idea to create a dedicated report for this in the next updates of Veeam ONE (part of Veeam Backup Management Suite and Veeam Essentials).

Thanks!

Yes, of course it does. Veeam Essentials includes both Veeam B&R and Veem ONE, no matter what virtualization platform you are using.

In the way I see it, some poweshell scripting might be helpful in this case:

Code: Select all

asnp VeeamPssnapin
Get-VBRTapeMedium | Sort-Object {$_.FindMediaFamily().name} | Select-Object {$_.FindMediaFamily().name}, name, barcode 
This one-liner sorts tape objects in accordance with the media set they belong to and, then, outputs the name of media set, name of tape and its barcode.

Thanks.

Hi v.Eremin,

thanks for your powershell-line - this is (nearly) exactly what I searched, too. but is there a way to view the sequence number, too? I want to create a list with media set, tape name and sequence number.

Hi, Scheppach. I believe, you can do this by adding “MediaSequenceNumber” to the list of output parameters:

Code: Select all

asnp VeeamPssnapin
Get-VBRTapeMedium | Sort-Object {$_.FindMediaFamily().name} | Select-Object {$_.FindMediaFamily().name}, name, barcode, mediasequenceNumber

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
