Custom Script Logs

Logs that contain custom script execution results are stored in the /var/log/nxbackupagent/policy_name/CustomScript directory in the AHV Backup Proxy VM.

Logs of backup jobs are stored in the following directory: /var/log/nxbackupagent/policy_name/.

Also, you can see the logs in the backup job session in the AHV Backup Proxy console.

Defining Error Messages in Custom Script

In a custom script, you can define messages that must be placed in logs upon successful or failed execution of the script.

  • You can use the following template to define a message if the custom script execution was successful.

{
"oob_schedule_id": 44509,

"errorMessage": "",
"status": "Success"
}

Where 44509 is the identifier of created PD snapshot.

  • You can use the following template to define a message if the script execution failed.

{
"oob_schedule_id": "",
"errorMessage": "Unable to get vm_id list for Protection Domain='VeeamBackupProtection': Authentication failed.",
"status": "Failed"
}

In this case the backup job will fail with an error.

  • You can use the following template to define a message if the custom script execution finished with a warning.

{
"oob_schedule_id": 44509,
"errorMessage": "Pre-freeze took more time than expected",
"status": "Warning"
}

Where 44509 is the identifier of created PD snapshot.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
