I like what I see, but better console integration

So far I really like the agent. It works well. Backups and restores are very fast, however it would be nice to have better console integration.

  • Others have mentioned this already but the ability to configure the job from the VB&R console would be desirable. Having to RDP to all my servers in the cloud to manage the backup agent isn't very good.
  • Having to punch SMTP holes in my firewalls for every backup agent in the cloud just to receive email alerts isn't feasible. Can there also be an option for the VB&R console to send success/warning/fail alerts? Only one SMTP hole.
  • If would be nice to have the results of a restore to post back to the VB&R console.

I like how you've integrated what you have in the VB&R console, just would be great to have a little more. :D

Great job.
Thanks

Hi Pat,

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

Should be possible to use VBR's global email notification feature for agents jobs.

Noted, thanks!

Regarding agent management via Veeam B&R console:

For Agent copy jobs, I have this working. For the agent jobs, I don't see an option to have the job alert.

That would be great. Would be good to have the option of it email notifying of the complete restore so don't have to hang around for long restores.

Once again,
thanks.

Take a look at Configuring Global Email Notification Settings article. It works for agent jobs too.
