Getting SQL backup job reports just for the DBA team would be great. They are not interested in seeing that the "VM" was backed up, they only want to know SQL was successful! And I'm not talking about the existing "periodic" sql historical reports, that is no good to us as we don't use that option.

Hello,
There is SQL Backup Job Historical Information showing if DB is protected.
Does it provide what you are looking for?
Thanks!

It doesn't work. Apparently I need to have the "periodic" log backup option enabled for it to show up in the report. We don't use that option.

Sorry, but I`m not sure I fully understood your question. Could you elaborate on the request?
Did you mean that you need to know if SQL has been backed up correctly? The reports shows the protection state of databases.
Do you have SQL servers backed up in the same job with other VMs or you have a dedicated one?
Thanks!

Yes our DBA team wants to know if SQL has been backed up propery. Our SQL servers are configured in separate jobs, i.e. one backup job per SQL server. At the moment when I run this SQL historical report in Veeam One, it returns nothing. I checked with Support and they initially said I had to enable the "Backup logs periodically" option in the APIP section for this report to work.

I have the APIP settings set to require successful VSS processing and to Truncate logs.

Seems odd that a report will only work for a specific setting. I imagine alot of customers would use the settings I have used above, and expect to see the status of their SQL backups.

Thanks for the clarification.
If you have a backup job with the only VM being SQL server, successful backup job run means that the SQL server VM has been backed up with no issues.
You may run surebackup job to make sure it is recoverable.

Just wanting an option that can send out a report to a DBA team, of VM's containing SQL that have been backed up. Like I said, they don't care if a "VM" is protected, they want to see that SQL is backed up.

That`s a bit confusing.
If SQL in VM is not backed up successfully the job will not have success status.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

Has it ever been discussed/request for just the data protection view from VeeamOne to be licensed on its own or as a stand alone product? I'm thinking for customers that may have their Hypervisors/virtual environments monitored elsewhere, but still have a need for the data protection views/reports for their backup environments? Either a stand alone product (difficult I would expect) or just a VBR license to allow monitoring of just backup components, repos/proxies etc?

Hi Craig,

In 9.5 we have a special "Veeam backup data only" collection mode, which collects data required by backup reports and dashboards only. Is this what you're after?

Thanks!

Does that still require all hosts/VBR servers to be licensed?

Yes, otherwise how would you license Veeam B&R reporting and monitoring? Any feedback is welcome!

I suppose that's what I'm getting at/asking. If all I'm interested in is the VBR reporting, it can be very very expensive to license VeeamOne, just for that information. A stand alon VBR license would be of interest.

In this case there should be a separate SKU and the price should also vary depending on the size/amount for backup server, which leads to the per-socket licensing model again :) To make it cheaper, we usually recommend to look at Veeam Availability Suite or Essentials (both SKUs are bundled with Veeam ONE license).
