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.
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.
A sample report can be found here.
Download the zip or copy and paste into a .ps1 file from here.
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 = "firstname.lastname@example.org"
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.
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.
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.
