[MERGED] E-mail reporting with new linux agent

Post by ortoscale »

New agent is performing great. However, it's still lacking an integrated e-mail report feature. Any roadmap for that?
I'm using some script , found on forum, that sends email with one line, but it would be great if veeam could prepare some official solution in the meantime.

Thanks, Matjaž

[MERGED] Mail settings for Veeam Linux client

Post by calle »

Hi,

I have used Veeam Free solutions for my own Windows machines for a while now and it works great. I started to install Veeam Free Linux client at some of my Debian 9 servers last week and go that works to. I only have one thing I want to configure and that is email settings for Linux. At my Windows machines have a settings tap and can configure email reports and choose if I want mail when success, fail or warning. For my Linux client I can´t find these settings and I have check the documentation and cant find anything about it. For now all my Debian machines send be a mail telling me that a backup job has started, check log file for more info, I don´t want a backup if the backup processes is completed with success state, only warnings or fail. Anyone know if this is possible to do maybe via some script? And how do I disable the mail "Backup job has been started." ?

I have found the below script on one of the forums..

As provided in the description, the script will run backup and email job status. Basically you need to put the script into .sh file and place it into your crontab as described here. For more info on how to use cron on CentOS and other RHEL derivatives please refer to RedHat user guide.

[MERGED] Veeam agent for Linux Email Alert

Post by amgadsourial »

Hi Guys,

I've working on the Linux script for email alerts + the template but can't get it to work. I'm using Fedora 25 server edition with the most Linux agent up-to-date version available.
I'm using Postfix as the email software with mailx. Both are configured properly and I can use mailx to send emails out with no issues.
The problem I have is that the email being sent after the job is sent as plain text with no info.
Bellow is part of the email i receive after the job:

Code: Select all

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> </head> <body text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> <div class="moz-forward-container"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <table style="border-collapse: collapse;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0"> <tbody> <td style="border:none; padding: 0px;font-family: Tahoma;font-size: 12px;"> <table style="border-collapse: collapse;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0"> <tbody> <tr style="height:70px"> <td style="width: 80%;border: none;background-color: ;color: White;font-weight: bold;font-size: 16px;height: 70px;vertical-align: bottom;padding: 0 0 17px 15px;font-family: Tahoma;">Agent Backup job: Backup Job LOCALHOST.LOCALDOMAIN<div class="jobDescription" style="margin-top: 5px;font-size: 12px;"> Veeam Agent for Linux </div> </td> <td style="background-color: ;color: White;font-weight: bold;font-size: 16px;height: 70px;vertical-align: bottom;padding: 0 0 17px 15px;font-family: Tahoma;padding-bottom: 42px;"></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="2" style="border: none; padding: 0px;font-family: Tahoma;font-size: 12px;"> <table class="inner" style="margin: 0px;border-collapse: collapse;" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0"> <tbody> <tr style="height: 17px;"> <td colspan="9" class="sessionDetails" style="border-style: solid; border-color:#a7a9ac; border-width: 1px 1px 0 1px;height: 35px;background-color: #f3f4f4;font-size: 16px;vertical-align: middle;padding: 5px 0 0 15px;color: #626365; font-family: Tahoma;"><span>Friday, 22 June 2018 06:10:01</span></td> </tr> <tr style="height: 17px;"> <td style="width: 1%;padding: 2px 3px 2px 3px;vertical-align: top;border: 1px solid #a7a9ac;font-family: Tahoma;font-size: 12px;" nowrap="nowrap"><b>Success</b></td>

[MERGED] Re: Veeam agent for Linux Email Alert

Post by PTide »

Hi,
The problem I have is that the email being sent after the job is sent as plain text with no info.
It's not quite clear what kind of info the email is missing. Do you mean session statistics or something else? From the top of my head it might be related to - please try modifying your script is such way that $TEMPFILE is not deleted afterwards and check if the file actually contains any data in it. Also I'm curios if the #debug output part actually returns anything?

Thanks

I mean by the missing info "everything". The email is not sending the template including the session's info. it's sending just plan text as you've seen.

I'll modify the script to prevent deleting the $TEMPFILE and will let you know.

Thanks again for looking into this!

Hi,
It would be nice if this agent can send email notifications like in the Windows platform. Do consider that.

Hi,

You request has been noted, thank you for your feedback. Would you prefer the feature to utilize an existing mailing software (mutt, sendmail etc) or it would be fine if VAL utilized its own internal means to send reports?

Meanwhile please check the existing thread for possible workarounds.

Thank you

With the new v2.0 that allows for active backups, does the below change make sense for weekly active full backup and the rest incremental?

if [ `date +%A` = "Friday" ]
then
veeamconfig job start --name $JOBNAME --activefull 1> /etc/veeam/scripts/$JOBNAME.tmp 2> /etc/veeam/scripts/$JOBNAME.err
else
veeamconfig job start --name $JOBNAME --retriable --scheduled --highpriority 1> /etc/veeam/scripts/$JOBNAME.tmp 2> /etc/veeam/scripts/$JOBNAME.err
fi

Hi,

Yes, it does. Another way of getting automation for active fulls would be to schedule the job to run on all weekdays but Friday and add another line in crontab that will trigger fulls on Fridays.

Thanks

Hello Zainul,
Have you checked Veeam ONE reporting?
It has 4 dedicated agent-based reports that include both windows and linux agents.

Hi Shestakov

Thanks for reply, but this is what i'm looking:

https://blog.grufo.com/2017/09/26/veeam ... -versehen/

But the issue is, why it doesnt include on Linux, why we have to depend on third party scipts?

Thank you

I see your point. Let's wait for a reply of a person responsible for the Linux Agent.
I've just asked if you use Veeam ONE. Which is not a 3rd party script tool, but part of Veeam Availability Suite.

Hi @halimzhz,

So, basically you want to have built-in notification in standalone VAL (just like in VAW)?

P.S. You might want to check this script.

Thanks!

Dear Ptide,

Thanks for answering, but i dont think that the answer i'm waiting for because now i'm depend on https://blog.grufo.com/2017/09/26/veeam ... -versehen/

The template just like VAW but why its doesnt implement on VAL as what Veeam did on VAW

That the question i'm waiting for and theres must be a good reason by Veeam Team

Ok, I count your inquiry as a feature request.

As for the reason why it is not implemented yet - the feature hasn't been highly demanded over the course of 4 years, other features and bugs had higher priority, plus it seems that post-job scripts work just fine.

Thanks!
