PS monitoring?

Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

PS monitoring?

Veeam Logoby Sebastiaan-Vita » Fri May 19, 2017 8:25 am

With Veeam Backup and Replication there is the option to install the Powershell plugin.
We use this for monitoring the backups of customers.

Because of the rise of new ransomware we are looking to provide Veeam Agent for small businesses without a server to perform regular disaster recovery backups.
Is it possible to monitor these backups with a Powershell plugin or does the Veeam Agent version not have this available?
Otherwise we would have to create something to monitor via email.

If you send the backups to a Veeam repository (can also be done to the Free edition) you could leverage the existing Powershell module.

Quick example:
Code: Select all
Get-VBRBackup | Where { $_.IsEndPointBackup }

Job Name                  Type            Creation Time               VM count
--------                  ----            -------------               --------
Backup Job NIELS-LAPTOP   Windows Agen... 11/04/2016 14:47:46                1
Backup Job GAARA          Windows Agen... 9/04/2017 16:14:20                 1
Backup Job FOX01          Windows Agen... 20/06/2016 17:29:40                1
centos.foonet.local Ba... Linux Agent ... 2/04/2017 20:10:54                 1
debian backupjob_puppet   Linux Agent ... 18/05/2017 11:21:47                1
Backup Job NIELS-VPC      Windows Agen... 16/05/2017 18:59:00                1


There is no built-in Powershell yet in the agent to do this.

Other options are using the Veeam Availability Console (available later this year).

We still keep it to monitoring by email for now.

I will look into the VAC when it becomes available.
Thank you for pointing it out.
