centrally monitor Windows Server Backup
Posted on 2016-09-01
I am looking for a good way to centrally monitor Windows Server Backup that is running on multiple servers, mostly 2012 R2 but a few 2008 R2.
The servers are located all over the world and are connected by VPN to the central site
Windows Server Backup is initiated by a scheduled task which runs a power shell script
Right now backup status is sent by email along with an xml file including job details and results
I am looking for a better way to get a quick overview of the status of backups at all these sites. We already have PRTG installed but do not see an easy way to do it with PRTG.
