Veeam v9 – My Veeam Report 9.5.3

My Veeam Report has been updated for the release of VBR 9.5 Update 3. If you’re ready to install Update 3, you’ll want to update My Veeam Report as well.

What’s New

This minor update fixes a couple of property changes introduced with VBR 9.5 Update 3. The good news is that you can copy and paste your entire User-Variables region from your 9.5.1 report making the transition fairly simple.

Sample Report
A sample report can be found here.

Setup

Download

Download the zip or copy and paste into a .ps1 file from here.

Configure

The next step is to configure the (many!) script options which is done in the User-Variables region. There are three variables that must be configured before running.

1) Add your VBR server name

# VBR Server (Server Name, FQDN or IP)
$vbrServer = "yourVBRserver"

2) Ensure the path to the Veeam executable is correct

# Location of Veeam executable (Veeam.Backup.Shell.exe)
$veeamExePath = "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\Veeam.Backup.Shell.exe"

3) Configure Email Settings (or optionally the ‘Save HTML output to file’ section)

# Email configuration
$sendEmail = $true
$emailHost = "smtp.yourserver.com"
$emailPort = 25
$emailEnableSSL = $false
$emailUser = ""
$emailPass = ""
$emailFrom = "MyVeeamReport@yourdomain.com"
$emailTo = "you@youremail.com"

From here I would familiarize yourself with all the different options the report has to offer. Everyone likes to see something different and the report can be customized to show only the data that is important to you.

I’ll note again that as there are so many items possibly returned from the script I foresee some folks setting up multiple scripts for best results. For example, one script to run a daily report on backups, another weekly report for Tape Backup Jobs and possibly another that just lists expired tapes on Fridays – it’s completely up to you, your processes and the size of your environment.

Validate Everything!

Though I have tried my best to test every possible outcome of the report, I will not be astonished if I have overlooked or fat-fingered something along the way. Please do us all a favor and validate the output against your console to ensure the data returned is correct. If you find something off, please let me know so everyone can benefit from the fix.

Thank You

Lastly, I would once again like to thank all the past and present contributors to this project. I’m not sure I would have had the motivation to start and continue this project entirely on my own and am grateful for all whom have given advice, insight, tested and/or contributed.

    Hello there, very fond of your script. Just got it going again and it seems to have an issue with 9.5 Update 4. Any chance you will be updating it. I can arrange license if that helps.

    Crazy question, this report works great for monitoring our onsite backups. But – and it may just be me missing it – can it be pointed to the offsite backup job as well? And if so, in what Section?

    Can you help identify why the report is detecting the amount of free/total space on my Pure Storage SAN? Veeam can see my SAN and total storage.

      The last I looked into this, via PowerShell we can see that there is a repository but there is no way to access third party integrations (via Veeam’s PowerShell snapin). Not 100% sure if this still stands but I do believe so.
