Using VM attributes to quickly determine status of VM backups

One of the cool features of Veeam Backup & Replication v5 is its ability to document the status of the virtual machine backup within the virtual machine’s annotations by using attributes. This is one of the many notification options for an individual job, which may contain one or more virtual machines. Other notification options are also available, including email and SNMP.

The VM Notes option is a nice little addition to the quick visibility that you can get in the vSphere Client. Each virtual machine will have an attribute added with the backup server name, job name, last iteration time and file name of the backup job.
