Hi there,

Is there a way to disable the configuration backup notifications?

Thanks!

Seems there is no way to do this, unless you're using per job notification settings and disable the global ones. I will check though.

Hi Mephisto,
You can disable notifications in Global E-Mail Notification Settings. However, there is no specific rule for configuration backups.
Thanks.

That would turn the configuration prone to errors in my opinion. The reason is that we send the client email reports, but I believe sending reports about configuration backup is excessive.

Disabling in global settings will disable all notifications about the VM backups too, right?

I see the case, thanks for elaborating.

Unfortunately, yes.
The best what I can advice is to set a rule on your email server to discard notifications about configuration backup if you don`t need any of them.

I'll do that, thanks for the suggestion. For now I've just set the configuration backups to run less often.

It would be nice to see an standalone option for the configuration backup notifications in the future integrated into Veeam

You can specify empty To: field in global settings and specify per-job To: addresses in the jobs where you need to send notification.

I appreciate the suggestion but I think this is prone to mistakes in the future if someone creates a backup job and doesn't know there is a custom way to set up the alerts for example.

You can use new "save as default" option; this will preserve the specified email settings for all jobs that will be created in future. Thanks.

I vote for a flag to disable "Configuration Backup notification" in global settings

I agree, would also like specific email settings available for Configuration Backups. Would like to receive e-mail only on error.
