I don't want to disable it. I just want to stop my client from getting 1 every minute.

It should be generated once a month and should disappear, once they send it.

Are you saying your customers get it, whenever they open backup server UI?

Thanks.

I'm saying I have a customer who gets in their email once every few minutes.

Hi Vladimir,
I have a question regarding Monthly Reports. We have 3 different sites with VEM + VBS deployed. Our Veeam reseller does not want to receive 3 different monthly reports and requires us to send a unique one. Before 9.5U4, I was able to poll the 3 VBS servers via PowerShell to generate this report based on this call:
$ViRentalDetailsUsage = [Veeam.Backup.DBManager.CDBManager]::Instance.VmLicensing.GetPerVMUsageStats($true, [Veeam.Backup.Common.EPlatform]::EVmware)
A list of protected VMs (as per Veeam policy) across the 3 sites was then generated and provided to our reseller.
It is no longer working with U4. Could you please advise if this list is still available in U4? Thanks.
Regards,
JJ

You can generate license report by going to Menu -> License -> Report and send it to your reseller. Thanks!

Hi Vladimir,
Issue is that my reseller wants a unified license report and I would like to avoid manual steps.
It worked like a charm with VBR up to 9.5u3a. Isn't there another way to do the same thing with u4? Thanks.
Regards,
JJ

Based on the code snippet, the script seems to have been interacting with product db directly in unsupported fashion (by loading assembly), so it couldn't be considered as officially supported way to get those metrics.

The licensing counters are available on VBRCloudTenant object, so, feel free to use it instead.

Tanks!

Hi Vladimir,
Thank you. Issue is that we do not leverage Veeam Cloud Connect so we cannot use VBRCloudTenant object.
Any other idea about how to achieve this? Should I try with Enterprise Manager API instead? Thank you for your help.
Regards,
JJ

+1 for a report feature/email for normal users.

We use Druva inSync to back up our clients here and I get a nice email every month about the entire backup footprint. It includes things like last backup date, how much is used, how many restore points, number of devices, pretty much a huge list of things. I have my boss CC'd on them and they really appreciate being able to see it without having to actually look into the product. It is something after reading this thread that I don't really get from veeam. Your backup notification emails are nice, an extension of those to include a more report style would be useful to me (as an IT admin). I get that Veeam has reporting tools but an email report is much easier for people who don't know how to use veeam.
