Veeam Monitor "last backup" and Reporter protected VM

Post by Aremac » Jul 01, 2015 7:39 pm

Has anyone seen this:

Veeam monitor under vm's summary tab several VM show inaccurate last backup (reporting 34 days ago when the vm is backed up daily and monthly [separate jobs]) other VMs in the same backup job shows dates all over the place, from under a day ago (which is correct) to 134 days ago.

Also, when running Protected VM in reporter Each VM has a duplicate entry. Everything is the same in each entry except Last Backup Date. One entry shows 6/1/2015 the other 6/30/2015 (it appears to be doing this for every VM)

Hi Sam,

How did you add your Veeam backup server to the Veeam ONE console? Do you use Enterprise Manager by any chance?

Thanks!

we do use EM. And looking at the Monitor Data Protection view I see the Veeam backup server structure listed twice, So I will say it was added by both EM and by pointing to the Backup server.

You need to have a single entry for Veeam backup server, preferably via Enterprise Manager, otherwise there could be duplicates and such issues with wrong reporting.

In our next update this configuration will be automatically resolved, meaning that all Veeam B&R servers managed by EM will be automatically placed under EM node in the Veeam ONE Monitor Client. Thanks!
