Protected VMs

The Protected VMs report analyzes backup protection of VMs in your virtual environment. The report examines whether VMs have valid backup or replica restore points created within the specified time range (RPO period), shows the total number of restore points available for each protected VM, and provides information on the completion status of recent backup and replication job sessions.

The Protected VMs report helps you identify which VMs in your environment function without proper protection and make sure the existing backups and replicas meet the established RPO requirements.

To create the report, Veeam MP retrieves data from the following sources:

  • Historical data on backup and replication job sessions for the specified RPO period (gathered from Veeam Backup & Replication servers by MP for Veeam Backup & Replication)
  • List of VMs in the virtual environment (gathered from VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V management servers by Veeam VMware MP and Veeam Hyper-V MP)

Make sure that the same virtual management servers are both connected to Veeam Backup & Replication console and displayed in the Veeam Virtualization Extensions UI under the same unique address, either DNS name or IP. Otherwise, the report output will show all VMs as unprotected.

Protected VMs Note:

To make the report work properly, you will need to connect VMM with Operations Manager. For more information on setting up VMM integration with Ops Mgr, see this Microsoft KB article.

Sample Usage

This section provides step-by-step instructions that will help you understand how to create the Protected VMs report. Consider the following example:
