veeam exclusions

For anyone that uses veeam backup software, we need a report for a compliance audit to list what exactly is being backed up for all VM's, i.e. does it include all drives, or are there backup jobs with drive exclusions configured. Is there a way to do this as 1 report, or will we need to review the configs seperately (new to veeam).

As I am not from a backup/restore background, for what reason would you include exclusions of certain drives in a backup job!?

You can create Job Reports, which will list, what the Job does.

The drive contains files you do not want to backup!

Are the reports a single report per server or can you create a master report for all servers

Check out Veeam One as well.  It may provide you with additional reporting information.   You can get it for a 30 day trial.    

The only reason I would exclude a drive from a backup is if I truly didn't need to back that data up.  For example, a 2tb drive filled with install files such as Office, AutoCAD, etc.   It would be more economical for us to just download the installs again than to use up the space on out backup to disk and tape
