My Veeam Report v1.3 with VBR v8 Support

Find the latest version here.

I finally got around to updating My Veeam Report for VBR v8. I waited around long enough to hear other opinions on the upgrade and as far as I can tell it has gone pretty smooth for most folks.  After taking the plunge and playing with some of the new features available in VBR v8, I must say I am quite happy with the result.

My Veeam Report v1.2

VeeamReport-v1_2Find the latest version here.

My Veeam Report v1.2 has arrived! With it comes a couple of minor tweaks and the addition of successfully backed up VMs. For those backing up hundreds (or thousands) of VMs, this option can be disabled within the User Variables section. In smaller scenarios it’s nice to see at a glance which VMs got backed up last night.

This will most likely be the last update prior to Veeam rolling out v8.  We’ll have to wait and see if any changes are needed for it to continue to work properly.

My Veeam Report

Here’s another case of taking a script that someone has shared and putting your personal tweaks into it.

If there was an area in which I wish Veeam would improve, it would be reporting. Though their answer is VeeamOne, it’s a bit much if you just want the additional backup reports. Fortunately this can be overcome with some creative Powershell. I started with a report called vPowerCLI v6 Army Report which can be found here. I had used this report for quite a while until v7 came along and broke a few items. I decided to take the opportunity to not only fix the issues (where I could) but also add some information to the report. I had also been looking at the SAMReports found here and decided to combine a few bits. Lastly, Tom Sightler had a post here that added the ability to report back VMs that had not been backed up within the given time frame – very nice. I can’t say enough about the original authors, without which, I never could have come up with such a report in the end.

Veeam v7 – Backing up a single VM within a job

Find the latest version here.

One of the best things about Powershell and the community is the ability to easily find what others have done and improve upon it or tweak it for your own needs. This was the case with a script I found in the Veeam forums a few months back to backup a single VM using Powershell. It worked great (with a minor issue described below) but unfortunately was broken after upgrading to v7.  I was able to identify the issues causing it to fail but was not able to rectify them all. Back to the forums I went and with a little help from the folks at Veeam we were back in business.
