No email notification on restore jobs?

Veeam Logoby dcolpitts » Wed Apr 09, 2014 1:38 pm

I don't seem to get any email notifications on restore jobs. Email notification is set globally, and we get notification on backups (both successful and failed), but nothing at all on restores. We are on B&R 7 Patch 3A. Am I missing something here?

Dean, currently Veeam B&R does not send notifications for restore jobs activity. However, you can use the Restore Activity report in Veeam ONE to track it.

Thanks Foggy - I think that is a glaring omission in Veeam... If you can send backup jobs, then there is no reason you shouldn't be able to send restore jobs. My two cents worth I guess.

Thanks

Thanks for your feedback. We probably need to consider adding some basic restore reporting in Veeam B&R.

I guess one of the reasons why there are no notifications is that you run the restore job manually, cannot schedule it, so you should be aware on what's going on.

I partly agree with what you are saying - however, that being said - if someone else on the IT team starts the restore, it would good for the rest of the team to know a restore has occurred (communication is not always the first thing thought of on some teams). Further to that, if you start a restore and it takes a long time to complete, it would be nice to have an email to advise you that the restore is done so you are not constantly having to baby sit it to see if it is completed.

We currently utilize the job notification in BackupExec for exactly these reasons.

Got it, makes sense. Even though it is currently not available, it is still possible to track restore jobs and send email notifications as you want. In order to achieve that you can use Windows Event log to trigger the email notification via 3rd party tool > http://www.veeam.com/kb1834

P.S. this capability should also be available in the next update of Veeam ONE.

I know this is an old post but would like to see this implemented in a later version. Re: ...if you start a restore and it takes a long time to complete, it would be nice to have an email to advise you that the restore is done. It really would be nice to get an email, I am in this scenario right now.

Yes, this feature for Veeam B&R is still on the radar. Thanks!
