I'm using Veeam Endpoint backup free solution on one of my servers. I'm running it with a batch file, checking %ERROLEVEL% after and based on that sending mail notification. It would be realy nice to have info I've mentioned earlier, to have quick overview about the backup (a bit more than errocode 0, -1 or 5)

Makes sense, in this case why not to monitor Windows Event log entry that contains job error message in addition just to an error code? This should help in getting the basic info on why the backup job failed and whether intimidate troubleshooting is required or not.

I agree that it would be useful if VEB created a "human readable" log file when concluding a backup. I've evaluated the product while I love it, in my view this is a strike against it. Without a human readable log file that could be sent via email, I have no way of knowing if the backup completed (or failed) on my client computers.
Is there another Veeam product that includes such logging? Thank you!
