Add-In for daily backup reports RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm looking for an add-in that will e-mail a report every day with the status of the last cycle of backups. It's important to know whether all systems were backed up successfully or whether any of the backups had errors, but there doesn't seem to be any such functionality in Home Server.

    Can anyone recommend an add-in that will accomplish this?

  • Windows Home Server doesn't expose the information you're looking for to add-ins. (Though it's available through the console, the API calls the console is using are undocumented.) Through the published API, you can find out the status of the last backup run overall, but not the status of each individual computer's last backup. For more information about what information is available to add-ins, you might want to consult the Windows Home Server SDK documentation .
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
