This script checks the Veeam backup log files on a NSClient++ host.
This script checks the Veeam backup log files on a NSClient++ host.

It will return a nice output line with information about status, bytes backed up runtime etc.

Options are /w: for days before generating a warning after last successful backup and /c: for days before creating a critical after last successful backup.

I've got a problem with the script.
First there's an error at line 123 (that error occurs when job is starting in retry mode).

strBackupFailedDateTime = Right(strBackupFailedDateTime,Len(strBackupSuccessDateTime) - 1)

Whereas I think it should be :

strBackupFailedDateTime = Right(strBackupFailedDateTime,Len(strBackupFailedDateTime) - 1)

Second, when corrected, I've got the error : CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 30 seconds.

As the Backup log files replace characters with an underscore character (_) from the Backup Job name, the "strVeeamBackupName" string should be parsed to replace all spaces.

The other problem is that I have one Job (from 10) that has failed for about 2 weeks. Even though logs exist in the history with Success status, I'm guessing they will be in one of the .1/2/3/4/5 archived log files. As I get this failure with the 2 weeks of failure job:

.\check_veaam.vbs(129, 4) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Type mismatch: 'strBackupFailedDateTime'

I presume it is because there is no logic to skip this step since the file probably does not have a success report.

Otherwise it works perfect so far with Veeam

Now I just need a wrapper script to automatically extract Job names and run the script for auto running / Job addition :)
