On Friday, we released the new Windows Server Backup Management Pack.  You can download it from here:


This management pack will allow you to monitor the status of Windows server backup and recovery tasks scheduled on a server.   Alerts are generated when an error or warning is reported in the scheduled backup/recovery operation. The health state is marked red when any action completes with an error. Similarly, the health state is marked yellow when an action completes with a warning. These are the monitored events:

  • Backup cancelled
  • Backup failed
  • Backup failed due to snapshot
  • Backup partially succeeded
  • Backup succeeded with skipped files
  • Recovery failed
  • Recovery succeeded with warnings

  • Hi Travis,

    The documentation still refers to Windows Server 8.

    Also it is not clear why System Center 2012 Configuration Manager is needed this MP to work.

    It is a small MP but it is good to have proper documentation even if it is 2 pages.

  • Does anyone know whether this MP monitors Windows Backup on Server 2008 (and R2) and Server 2012 (and R2) or whether it is limited to 2012?
