Way to monitor for missed endpoint backups?

Veeam Logoby Anguel » Mon Jun 13, 2016 9:29 am

Hi! I am using Veeam Endpoint Backup together with VBR & Veeam One. Now I noticed that some endpoints had not done a backup for weeks because Windows 10 fast startup re-enabled itself (probably due to some Win 10 update) and this causes WOL not to work (more on this problem in my blog: http://techie-blog.blogspot.de/2014/03/ ... ndows.html).
Now the problem is that there was no alarm about the missing backups. I see a setting in Veeam One but this does not seem to apply for endpoints, only VMs:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/one/alarms ... larms.html
So is there any way to receive an alarm if backups are missed?

Hi,

Just to make sure that I got it right - backups were missed because the machine could not be waked up, is that correct? Did you pointed backups to Veeam repository?

Thanks

Yes, endpoint PC did not wake up, was off and therefore no backup to the repository occurred - this is expected and not the problem.
I just expect Veeam One to be able to send me some notification if the last available endpoint backup for a PC is e.g. 3 days ago.

Currently Veeam ONE does not support Endpoint monitoring. A possible workaround is to setup a daily script running on the repository side that checks if a new file has appeared in the endpoint backup folder.

Please add this as a feature request for Veeam One. I expect a leading paid monitoring solution to be able to inform me of such things without having to write my own scripts. I purchased the Essentials package (VBR & One) and expected endpoint integration but One was really not worth the money so far, also regarding the fact that it is giving me other false alarms too.

Well, I have now tried to schedule different backup copy jobs to different times, unfortunately this gives even more "Job exceeded backup window" errors and also some new "Incremental copy was not processed during the copy interval" errors have also appeared. Regarding the confirmed bugs with endpoint backup copy jobs I am not sure what is really going on there. I really hope that the endpoint backup quality will soon get to the level of Veeam VM backups.

Thanks for the update!
Regarding backup windows, I would either extend them or try to speed them up starting with the bottleneck analysis.
And again you feedback about Veeam ONE - Endpoint integration is taken into account.

Thank you. I have changed back to the default continuous / automatic schedule for now and will have to live with the (hopefully) false error messages about exceeded backup windows:
veeam-backup-replication-f2/backup-copy-job-problems-t33777-15.html#p198565
and locked backup archives:
veeam-backup-replication-f2/backup-copy-job-problems-t33777.html#p185812
until the next release will hopefully fix those bugs.

This can be done. Usually when I get that error I've noticed that you increase the bock settings and the amount time it takes for a backup to happen.

If you haven't already I suggest getting in contact with support for assistance on how to do this or you can shoot me a PM! :D
