The report provides daily backup status for all VMs protected with Veeam Backup & Replication.


The report complements the Protected VMs report and shows daily job completion results for backup and replication tasks.


To run the VM Backup Status report, you must have Veeam Management Pack for Microsoft System Center installed.

Report Output

The report will display information on the status of backup and replication tasks for the previous week.

The VM Backup Status chart will display how many times backup and replication tasks completed successfully, ended with warnings or failed on each day of the previous week.

The report table will provide a list of protected VMs and display daily backup or replication results. If backup or replication tasks for the same VM were performed several times a day, the report will show the best completion status.
