Feature Request

Monitoring and reporting for Veeam Backup & Replication, VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V

Feature Request

Veeam Logoby skonvols2k » Fri Aug 19, 2016 2:17 pm

Hi,
referring to case 01859786, I have a feature Request regarding Veeam One Reporter, in particular the report "Protected VM":

Right now VMs are considered protected when backed up by one of the following jobs: Backup, Replication or Backup Copy. In my case they are backed up by SAN Rescan job (Netapp Snapshot used as primary destination) and that cause the VMs are erroneously reported as unprotected.

I need to produce information for audit and compliance records and right now, according to this report, I have an 100% of unprotected VMs, it's possible to add this feature?

Thanks
Kindly Regards

Hi,

Can you please clarify what do you mean protected by a SAN recsan job? Do you configure this job in NetApp? Protected VMs report only shows VMs that you have backups for, and creating SAN snapshot doesn't product backup files that you can send to the offsite location/store on 3rd party media.

Thanks!

Hi,
Yes, San rescan job is how support on indicated case calls a job that has primary and only destination a NetApp snapshot.

This is what Dimitriy E. wrote to me in last update:
"Got an update. The devs say that possibly these new types will be added, but later. May I suggest you go to the forum and make a feature request regarding those reports?"

This is why i opened this post.
Thanks

Ok, actually I meant to say that how is this job configured in your infrastructure? Is it a regular backup job using SAN snapshots for retrieving VMs data? If this is the case, then this is a bug in report and not a FR :)

i just have the same problem. VMs that are backed up via a backup job based on netapp storage snapshot are not listed in the Protected VMs report. Is there an update or news?

Hello Lutz,
Are those VMs backed up by Veeam backup jobs?
What product version are you at?
Thanks!

Hey,
yes, the VM´s are backed up via VEEAM backup jobs.
Currently we are at Veeam B&R 9.5 U2 and Veeam One 9.5 Version 9.5.0.3254

Hmm, thus that is a bug.
I would recommend to install Update 3. Not 100% sure if that bug was fixed there, but most likely.
Thanks!

Hey Nikita,

yesterday i updated to VEEAM One 9.5 and VEEAM B&R 9.5 to current U3 Version.
Report is still not working.
Report "Protected VM´s" reports only VM´s as proteted wihich are backed up via backup job based on imaged level backup. VM´s which are backed up via backup job where backup is based on Netapp integration and PrimaryStorageSnapshot are not reported as protected.

Hi Lutz,

If you're running storage snapshots only, then these VMs are indeed not accounted in the Protected VMs report, since they are not "protected" per se. Please take a look at this post for clarifications.

It seems like we should create a separate report that looks at storage snapshot jobs only.

Thanks!

Hi Vitaliy,

for compliance reasons, we need such a report. Is there the possibility to build it for customers or is this really a feature request.

In our enviroment we use PrimaryStorageSnapshots and are replicating them the a secondary location, so from my point of view have a backup ;-).

Kindly regrads

That's a FR :), as Veeam ONE currently does not collect data about storage snapshots orchestrated by B&R. What data do you need to be displayed there? Backup type, VMs list, what else?

Now we are talking the same language :-D

Backuptype , VMs List , BackupJob , Backup Date ( oldest, last, ) Available restorepoints, Backup state

It would also be helpful to be able to create a VM backup status report for a specific VM. (This is often required by the auditors in the case of official audits)

Got it! Thanks for your FR. We will discuss this internally (with Nikita) and then see how it fits our current plans for backup reports.
