A few months back I came across this article from Luca Dell’Oca – Check multiple job settings in Veeam Backup & Replication with Powershell. As he describes, this is a great way to get a good view of your backup jobs. When you have a few hands in the mix, over time with lots of jobs, human error is going to happen. A missed check box here, incorrect setting there. You’ll be surprised what you may find the first time you look. So I decided to finally take his advice and create a quick report that dumps the job details to a csv file.
There are currently 24 attributes returned covering 90% of the options within the Edit Job wizard. The first time I ran the report I was surprised to see how many incorrect entries there were. Nothing catastrophic but lots of little inconsistencies. It’s great to have a view of everything all in one place, especially when you have many jobs.
