    Hi team,

    I have a question about NSX backup.

    Do we have ways to defect via SNMP when we turned out backup failed?

    I would like to detect the errors/ failure of NSX backup in some ways. 

    Thank you

    You can use the Log Insight NSX content pack to monitor the backup jobs. The dashboard will clearly show you status (Success or failed)

    Thank you for replying @Sree

    So you mean I need to prepare vRealize Log Insight and install NSX content pack in it, right?

    Isn't it possible to detect via SNMP? My customer does not purchase the Log Insight now, so if there are any other ways to detect errors please tell me. but I guess the Log Insight is the best way to clearly know the current status of NSX backup and of course other status as well.

    Thank you

    Unless something has changed, their nsx entitlement gives them Log Insight entitlement - just have to install it

    You can use log insight which is already available in the new license bundle.

    Hello,

    You can directly use the below NSX-T API's to check the backup status and the backup history respectively:

    1. Make a Rest api GET call using a Rest Client like postman with the url: https://<nsxt-manager fqdn or ip>/api/v1/cluster/backups/status to get the backup status.

    2. Make a GET call for history with url: https://<nsxt-manager fqdn or ip>/api/v1/cluster/backups/history.

    This should help you to get all details of your backups.

    Regards
