This is not directly possible via the GUI but I think it could be achieved using PowerShell and matching AzureAD/SP sites info with VBO.

ok, i made this Script, but land up with Credential errors, cause VM-Backup is not Domain Joined. Is there a possible way to include the stored VeeamBackup Account i used in Veeam from my AAD tennant? Cause this is giving me a headache right now. Thanks for any help


Script Start
#>

$organizationname = "xxx.onmicrosoft.com"
$backupjob = "Testbackup"

Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup365\Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell\Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell.psd1"

$Org = Get-VBOOrganization -Name $organizationname
$Job = Get-VBOJob -Name $backupjob
$siteUrl = "https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/teams/"

$Sites = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $org -URL $siteUrl -Recurse -NotInJob

ForEach ($Site in $Sites) {
#Write-Progress -Activity "Parsing sites" -status "Site: $Sites.Name" -percentComplete ($i / $Sites.count * 100)
$newSite = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $Site
Add-VBOBackupItem -Job $Job -BackupItem $newSite
}

Write-Host "Added a total of " $Sites.count " sites to the job"

Script End


Powershell Output

Are you running the script on the VBO server? As I noticed you are getting a 401 Unauthorized message.

Yes its running on VBO Server. But i guess its a credential problem on Sharepoint, so i need to pass the credentials with the script for sharepoint, when it collects data, and i need to change the user when it wants to update the VBO Job on the server side. Tricky..wish i could just address the keyvault from VBO Server to handle all this

By default, it should be able to use the same user (administrator for eg) and work via PowerShell. A domain isn't needed. How did u add the organization to VBO (legacy auth or MFA)?

Re: Sharepoint Backup all Sites, but not Teams and Office Groups

Post by dontlikemondays »

Found out whats going on here and the problem: I want to collect all Sites after this URL https://xxx.sharepoint.com/teams/ to have them excluded in the JOB.
If i change this Line to $siteUrl = "https://xxx.sharepoint.com/teams/myteams" it works, but only for that specific site. But i need to collect all Team sites...
If i open up https://xxx.sharepoint.com/teams in a Browser, i get 404 not found

My script:

Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup365\Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell\Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell.psd1"
$organizationname = "xxx.onmicrosoft.com"
$backupjob = "Skriptsharepoint"
$Org = Get-VBOOrganization -Name $organizationname
$Job = Get-VBOJob -Name $backupjob
$siteUrl = "https://xxx.sharepoint.com/teams"

$Sites = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $org -URL $siteUrl -Recurse -NotInJob

ForEach ($Site in $Sites) {
#Write-Progress -Activity "Parsing sites" -status "Site: $Sites.Name" -percentComplete ($i / $Sites.count * 100)
$newSite = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $Site
Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem -Job $Job -BackupItem $newSite
}

Write-Host "Added a total of " $Sites.count " sites to the job"

First run the following command in a PowerShell cmd with administrator rights:

Code: Select all

Install-PackageProvider -Name NuGet -Force
Install-Module -Name PowerShellGet -Force
Install-Module -Name ExchangeOnlineManagement -RequiredVersion 1.0.1
Install-Module MicrosoftTeams
You have to do this only once normally to assure you can run the below script. It will request for your credentials twice but you could solve this by storing them in a $credential variable (unless you use MFA for the account).

Code: Select all

Import-Module ExchangeOnlineManagement
Import-Module MicrosoftTeams
Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup365\Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell\Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell.psd1"

Connect-ExchangeOnline
Connect-MicrosoftTeams

$organizationname = "organization"
$backupjob = "backupjobwithoutTeams"
$Org = Get-VBOOrganization -Name $organizationname
$Job = Get-VBOJob -Name $backupjob

$Teams = (Get-Team |Select GroupId, DisplayName)

ForEach ($T in $Teams) {
   $siteUrl = (Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity $T.GroupId | Select -ExpandProperty SharePointSiteURL)
   Write-Host "URL for the" $T.DisplayName "team is" $siteUrl
}

$Sites = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $org -URL $siteUrl -Recurse -NotInJob

ForEach ($Site in $Sites) {
  #Write-Progress -Activity "Parsing sites" -status "Site: $Sites.Name" -percentComplete ($i / $Sites.count * 100)
  $newSite = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $Site
  Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem -Job $Job -BackupItem $newSite
}

Write-Host "Added a total of " $Sites.count " sites to the job"

I'm not sure how to resolve the issue. It could be a permission issue with the used account. Another option is to use the Graph API however that requires you to create an application within Azure AD before you can benefit from it.

Maybe you see the error? There is always just one Site added to Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem... i am getting dizzy at this point.



PS C:\Scripts> ForEach ($T in $Teams) {
$siteUrl = (Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity $T.GroupId | Select -ExpandProperty SharePointSiteURL)
Write-Host "URL for the" $T.DisplayName "team is" $siteUrl
}

Output

URL for the ZMI team is https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/W-WB-Med
URL for the Vernetzungstagung team is https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/Vernetzungstagung
and so on .....ok working

PS C:\Scripts> $Sites = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $org -URL $siteUrl -Recurse

PS C:\Scripts> ForEach ($Site in $Sites) {

Re: Sharepoint Backup all Sites, but not Teams and Office Groups

Right now, you have a foreach going over the teams and you set the $siteURL to a value. Once this is done you take it and put it in $Sites but since the foreach is done, it only will take the last value.

I believe the below should work:

Code: Select all

ForEach ($T in $Teams) {
  $siteUrl = (Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity $T.GroupId | Select -ExpandProperty SharePointSiteURL)
  Write-Host "URL for the" $T.DisplayName "team is" $siteUrl
  
  $Site = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $org -URL $siteUrl -Recurse
  $newSite = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $Site
  Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem -Job $Job -BackupItem $newSite
}

$Site = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $org -URL $siteUrl -Recurse
$newSite = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $Site
Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem -Job $Job -BackupItem $newSite
}

URL for the Test EWO team is https://xxx.sharepoint.com/sites/TestEWO
Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem : Cannot validate argument on parameter 'Job'. The argument is null. Provide a valid value for the argument, and then try running the command again.

I only modified the part starting from the foreach to resolve it. You need to combine it with the upper part because you need to define $Job.
