Check Last Backup, Script available in Version 1.2

There is a new Version of my SCDPM PowerShell Script, Check Last Backup. I have added a high requested Feature, to skip Hyper-V Datasources.

Why you want to skip VM Backup? My Script is starting a Backup job if your backup is too old, so cause Hyper-V VM’s can sometime backed up in Offline mode, that is not good if this is happening during production time.

So the Script has now the possibility to skip Hyper-V VM Datasources.

Like the previous Version, you can call this Script with Parameter’s and send the Result as an email.

The Script

At the beginning is a list of Parameter’s.

#Parameter
Param(
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][string]$DPMServerName,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][string]$Spandays,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][switch]$Checkonly,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][switch]$SkipHyperV,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][switch]$LogPublic,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][switch]$SendLogFile,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][string]$SMTPServer,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][string]$SMTPSender,
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$false)][string]$SMTPTo
   
)
#Import Modules
Import-Module dataprotectionmanager

#Testing
#$LogPublic=$true
#$Checkonly=$true
#$SkipHyperV=$true
#$SendLogFile=$True
#$SMTPServer="ExchangeServer01"
#$SMTPSender="DPM_Alerts@techguy.at"
#$SMTPTo="michael@techguy.at"

#Standard Parameters if empty
if (!($DPMServerName)){$DPMServerName=$env:COMPUTERNAME}
if (!($Spandays)){$Spandays="3"}

Now the logging and connection to SCDPM Server

$Log=@()

Get-Datasource -DPMServerName  $DPMServerName | Out-Null
$DS=Get-Datasource -DPMServerName  $DPMServerName | where {$_.CurrentProtectionState -eq "Protected"}
$Date=Get-Date -format d ((Get-Date).adddays(-$Spandays))

#Functions
Function Write-Log ($Text) {
        # Write Log to PS if $LogPublic is Yes
    if ($LogPublic) {
        if ($Text -match "INFO:") {
            Write-Host $Text -ForegroundColor Green
        } elseif ($Text -match "WARNING:") {
            Write-Host $Text -ForegroundColor Yellow
        } elseif ($Text -match "ERROR:") {
            Write-Host $Text -ForegroundColor Red
        } else {
            Write-Host $Text
        }
    }
    return $Text
    
}

Function Query-DSJobs ($DS) {
    # Query DS if there is an active Job
            
    if ((Get-DPMJob -Datasource $DS -Status InProgress).count -ne 0) {
        $Log+=Write-Log "WARNING: There is a running Job for DS:  $DS.Name"
        return $False
    } else {
        $Log+=Write-Log "INFO: No running Jobs for DS:  $DS.Name"
        return $True
    }
}

At the end there is the magic.

Foreach ($Entry in $DS) {

$Entry




    if ($Entry.ObjectType -eq "Microsoft Hyper-V" -and $SkipHyperV)
    {
        $Log+=Write-Log "Warning: Skip HyperV $Entry"
    }
    else
    {
        $RP=Get-RecoveryPoint -Datasource $Entry | Sort-Object BackupTime -Descending
        if ($RP.count -gt 0) {
            $CompareDate=Get-date($RP[0].BackupTime) -format d
            $Span=New-TimeSpan -Start $CompareDate -End $Date
                if ($Span.Days -gt 0) {
                    $Log+=Write-Log "Error: $CompareDate, $Date, $Entry"
                    if ($Entry.State -eq "Invalid") {
                    if (!($Checkonly)) {if (Query-DSJobs $Entry)  {Start-DPMDatasourceConsistencyCheck -Datasource $Entry}}
                    } else {
                     if (!($Checkonly)) {if (Query-DSJobs $Entry) {New-RecoveryPoint -Datasource $Entry -Disk -BackupType expressfull –WithDataIntegrityCheck -Verbose}}
                    }
                } else {
                    $Log+=Write-Log "Info: $CompareDate, $Date, $Entry"
                }
        } elseif ($RP.count -eq 0) {
        $Log+=Write-Log "Error: no Recoverpoint $Entry"
         if (!($Checkonly)) {if (Query-DSJobs $Entry) {Start-DPMDatasourceConsistencyCheck -Datasource $Entry}}
        }

    }
}


if ($SendLogfile) 
{
    $Mailtext=$Log -join "`r`n"  
    $Mailtext=$Mailtext+ $Footer
    Send-MailMessage -From $SMTPSender -SmtpServer $SMTPServer -To $SMTPTo -Subject "RP Status from $DPMServerName" -Body $Mailtext  
}
