Snapshot report via email

Given the quick and enthusiastic response to the Netapp Powershell Toolkit I'm surprised to see no scripts in here. Mine's pretty basic but at least I get to be first!

This script will simply pull out details of all snapshots over a specified age from a list of filers and send an HTML formatted email to a list of recipients. Obviously it can easily be scheduled for regular reporting. Thanks to fjohn for the snapshot code - as a Powershell newbie I'd probably have struggled with that.

Regards,

Ed.

Thanks,

I'm glad you found it useful.  My snippets are meant to be more of ideas of what could be than anything else.  They're meant to inspire othere to create solutions. :-)

Happy Scripting

Re: Snapshot report via email

Great script and very usefull...does anybody know how i could include whether the snaps are busy in this report?

Re: Snapshot report via email

It's pretty simple to check for a busy snapshot, you can just use the snapshot's 'busy' property. I've added this to the report - see the attached file.

Hi

Can this be done thru UNIX. Please let me know if some has the script on UNIX for this.

TIA

Re: Snapshot report via email

Hello, Sri.  The scripts in this community area based on the Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit, so they may only be run on Windows.  To accomplish something similar from UNIX, you would need to use the NetApp Manageability SDK with perl or Java, but it would probably take a little more effort to get there!

Hi,

Ed, your script works great for what I need.  Thank you for sharing!   Have you considered a snippet of code inside to disregard offline volumes? When I run the script I get "Get-NaSnapshot : The specified volume <name> is offline." along with a few other lines of Powershell error text.  I haven't learned to use Powershell well enough yet to be doing my own coding, but trying to learn.  Would this be difficult to do?

Mike, try this:  Get-NaSnapshot -ErrorAction Ignore

Re: Snapshot report via email

Thank you for your help, Clinton!  This works...

Get-NaSnapshot -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue


Re: Snapshot report via email

Hi,

Is it possible to send an email only if the last backup is older than X days?

Thanks,
