what user terminated a running job?

Post by cmdrriker »

Is there any veeam log or powershell command that will show what user terminated a running job?

Is it possible to enable some type of auditing within veeam6?

It will be reflected in the job session history. It is enabled by default, and you cannot disable it, or delete any records.

Unless I am looking in the wrong place, I am not seeing a username in the job session history. Can you tell me please where the job session history is located so I can confirm that I am looking in the right place?

User names are provided for restore operations only. There is also System event logged on each UI startup, but I don't remember from the top of my head if it shows the user name or not.

So there's no way then to tell which user terminated a running replication job? If there is not, then I would like to submit a feature request.

Forgive me if I am wrong but you can only run Veeam B&R Console on the Veeam server itself?

Thus if you control access to the server via permissions, auditing etc then you can marry that to the events in Veeam itself?

That is what we do, each tier of support can log into the Veeam server, which is audited as to who and when, and then I can marry that with activity on the Veeam server to see what they did...

I would prefer to be able to install the console on different machines and create roles, scopes, permissions etc so that different tiers of support can do different things in Veeam.
