Altaro Hyper-V Backup

The Altaro Hyper-V Backup Check queries the Windows Application Event Log on the local device to determine the status of any backups that have completed in the preceding 24 hour period.

We check the following Event IDs to ascertain the success or otherwise of the backup jobs.

Event ID

Successful Backup with Warnings


Failed Backup

The Backup Check passes where the specified number of Success or Complete with exceptions (where Show 'complete with exceptions' as successful is configured) messages are discovered.
