Pretty simple.

Allow configuration of an SMTP server to send email on either success and or fail

Failure/Success emails would be great!
I'd say most cases people would just want failure emails, so they can know when something is wrong.

Personally I would like to receive an email for success and failure. Otherwise you have to assume that a backup was successful (because you didn't receive an email) while it might be possible that there was a problem sending the failure email.

Currently there is (in event viewer) under Applications and Service Logs -> Veeam Backup quite a few events. (Don't forget it is beta so subject to change)

Event 23050 with source Veeam EP tells you that the job has started
Event 10010 with source Veeam EP tells you that the restore point has been created
Event 150 with source Veeam EP tells you that it has finished with success or failed depending on the state
Event 0 with source Veeam Backup tells you that the session has been completed

Have not tested yet, but the plan was once VBR is enabled as a backup target use the general email notifications for Endpoint backup sessions.

The email report would be very helpful where we would use VEB as a replacement for Windows Server Backup and we don't have monitoring agents in place (some small clients). Where we do have the agents (Kaseya), we would use Event Log monitoring for alerts.

Hi Brent,

Do you want to see something like we have for Veeam ONE, Kaseya, LabTech and MP for Backup where were have a predefined report named Protected VMs/Servers? In this report we list all computers and their latest restore points.

Thanks!

Yes, that would be fine... is that working now with Veeam ONE and Endpoint? Admins just need to be notified if a backup is not occuring.

No, currently Endpoint is a standalone tool, but thanks for your feedback.

My vote is definitely for email notifications on success/failure/warning just like we get for B&R.

While we're at it I wouldn't mind having a secondary SMTP server in case the primary is ever unavailable. Yes this has happened where we've manually checked backups due to the main smtp server having problems for a night.

Feature: Email notifications

Veeam Logoby scidoner » Wed Dec 10, 2014 9:22 am

I didn't see this in the settings anywhere, but I believe this feature is a must for any backup application. I would always expect to see such a feature both both home and enterprise usage in a backup product. :)

Forgive me though if it is there and I stupidly missed it...

We would very much like this feature added to the production release please! Email notification is the core of our backup business and would be the difference between us being able to use this product or not. We are currently Veeam B&R resellers and need a decent (physical) user backup tool urgently!
