Veeam v8 – My Veeam Report turns 2.0!

MVR2.0Find the latest version here.

It’s hard to believe that it has been two years since I posted my first version of My Veeam Report.  It’s amazing how times flies and interesting to see the progress that has been made. I am extremely grateful for all the feedback provided by folks who see the benefit of running such a report.

This update includes three major enhancements as well as a few smaller tweaks and polish. The two improvements I think will most benefit folks are the ability to query the Veeam database for repository info as well as the addition of Endpoint backup sessions. The last new addition is reporting for Restore sessions (not sure why this one slipped by for so long). Continue reading

After reading this post and using the feature a few times, I figured there would be no need to update the Single VM Backup script. It turns out there is still use for a script such as this which was pointed out to me in the comments (Thanks Phil!). Essentially the Quick Backup feature only works on VMs that have previously been backed up, it does not work for new VMs.
