The following features and enhancements were introduced in MP 8.0 for Veeam Backup & Replication.

Support for Veeam Backup & Replication 9.0

Veeam MP now supports Veeam Backup & Replication v9.

The recently released Veeam MP 8.0 for System Center - Update 1 contains additional discovery rules, new and updated monitors to support Veeam Backup & Repication v9 services:

The Veeam Backup Monitoring MP includes newly implemented service monitors designed to trace Veeam Backup & Replication v9 services.
The Veeam Backup MP Rule - Backup Job Change Tracking has been updated to track chages for backup to tape and file to tape jobs.
The _Veeam Backup Infrastructure Service Topology now also displays Veeam Backup & Replication v9 services.

New reports

Job Configuration Change Tracking. The report helps you track job modification changes performed within the reporting period, identify who and when made changes to job configuration, and thus simplify troubleshooting.
Backup Infrastructure Assessment. The report analyzes configuration of your backup environment against a set of recommended baseline settings and implementations, identifies VMs that cannot be properly backed up due to configuration limitations, verifies problem areas and helps mitigate potential issues.
VM Backup Status. The report provides daily backup status for all VMs protected with Veeam Backup & Replication.
Delegated Restore Permissions Overview. The report analyzes restore permissions configured in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. It returns a list of users and groups who can restore entire VMs, guest OS files and application items in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, and shows what type of data these users can restore according to assigned permissions.

Improved visibility for Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Management Pack 8.0 provides additional monitoring services including:

RPO Monitor — proactively generates alerts if RPO targets are in danger of falling outside of preconfigured ranges.
Job transport mode failover — generates an alert when a backup job fails to use the recommended and more robust VM disk backup methods.
Proxy/repository/WAN version — out-of-date, alerting monitor.
