Verified VMs

In this article

    This report provides information on SureBackup jobs performed by Veeam Backup & Replication and displays the summary of verified VMs.

    SureBackup and SureReplica technologies allow virtualization administrators to validate the recoverability of created backups and replicas in an isolated test environment by examining their key viability indicators. This ensures that your backups and replicas are fully reliable and minimizes the risk of data loss in case a VM fails.

    • The Summary section provides an overview on the number of protected and verified VMs, displays the status history of verified VMs and verification rate during the reporting period.
    • The Details table provides information on VMs tested and verified with SureBackup and SureReplica, including the number of failed verifications, last verified restore point, status of the last verification and the results of VM verification tests (ping commands, scripts execution and heartbeat messages).

    Report Parameters

    You can specify the following report parameters:

    • Infrastructure objects: defines a list of Veeam Backup & Replication servers to include in the report.
    • Business View objects: defines Business View groups to analyze in the report. The parameter options are limited to objects of the Virtual Machine type.
    • Last <N> weeks/months: defines the time period to analyze in the report.
