Job History Retention

Post by johntnavi » Aug 06, 2013 4:32 pm

Does anyone know if there is a default setting for all Backup jobs? I need to retain the status(completion\failed) on all jobs for over a year due to corporate policies. I see there is an event history option in Enterprise manager and want to be sure that is the setting. If that is so is 12 months the max or can I extend that.

Hi, John. You can go to the Backup server menu -> options -> History -> and specify there an interval during which you want to keep history data. Thanks.

it does not go above 12 months, I need to be able to get at least 16 as the previous year backups will be scrutinized by internal auditors.

Then, I’m wondering whether you have Veeam ONE deployed in your environment. If so, please be aware that the upcoming version of VeeamOne will have a rich set of pre-defined backup-related reports that can be used for auditing, compliance and other purposes, as well. Moreover, there will be a separate retention policy that can be extended up to three years.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback; much appreciated.

Hi.

Another option is to create a mailbox such as backupreporst@whatever,
and direct Veeam email reports there - in addition to reports you send to yourself.
Using an email distribution group (including yourself and an archive mailbox) is also possible.

This might not be the best option - but if you don't find something better I think that it is a good alternative or addition to built in history.

Email reports will also not be affected by reinstall or other changes to the backup server that might happen over time.
