Updated Veeam Weekly Backup Report – Powershell (BAW6)

Back in 2015, I created a 3-day Backup Report for Veeam that was based on the ‘SysAdmin Modular Report’ (SAMReport) – this is the link to the original post for that report:  http://virtualworlduk.co.uk/3-day-veeam-backup-report-powercli/ That report has been useful for a couple of years but I felt that I could do better, without having to link back to the vCenter server quite so […]
