Veeam BaR Search Objects not Job Name

Post by ViciousXUSMC »

I thought the behavior of search at the top of Backup and Replication would be "search all" but if I type in the name of a server it will not find it if its included in a backup job with multiple servers.
The only results I can find by searching is search the name of the backup job itself.

This is not very helpful, especially when trying to organize my group jobs where I manually have to click on them to see the object listing.
The data is right there a click away so I am not sure if this is by design, or a bug, or simply I need to find another way to do this search.

Does anybody have an idea of how to search for Server Names and return the jobs they are included in?

Hello Patrick,
note that there are several boundary cases:
  • VM is added to job source, but no backups were made
  • VM is added to job source as a part of container (host, tag, etc.)
  • VM has backups made by job, but now VM is not in the list of sources
Not sure what's the most convenient way to identify VM-Job correlation in VBR, but if you use Veeam ONE, you can find the information in its reports, e.g. Backup Infrastructure Custom Data.
