    How can i export my Backup Event-Id's for 10 servers to 1 .txt file


    Hi all!

    First of all, i am new to scripting but i want to learn it.
    We have Server 2012R2 in our organization and Windows Server Backup is running on each server daily. I want to automatically write a .txt file every day with the backup result to a destination (C:\Logfiles). I want all servers to write in that same file so i have 1 text-file with 10 server backup results from each one.

    I know i can attach a script to an Event-ID, such as eventid:4 (backup success).

    I am working on this for 2 days now but what am i doing wrong?
    I used powershell and also cmd but can't get it working (wevtutil qe Microsoft-Windows-Backup /f:text /q:"*[System/EventID=4] and *[EventData/Data[@Name='HRESULT']='0']")

    The script is needed for failed backup results and successfull backup results. I know that the failed backup results have a lot of event id's: 5,8,9,17,22 etc.

    Can somebody help me with this?

    Welcome to the forum. When wrting to a file you can use > to create the file ie dir >test.txt after that to write to same file you append with >> ie dir >>test.txt

    Thanks for that! Is there somebody who can help me with the correct syntax to get the event-id result for every day's backup?

    I now used Backup Failed and Backup Success scripts with the following content: $text = "$(Get-Date) CC-server01: Backup failed" $text >> 'C:\Log\Logging.txt'

    Also for the one that is successfull.
    I did this on 2 servers for testing and i have one script for the mailing:

    Send-MailMessage -Attachments 'C:\Log\Logging.txt' -SmtpServer "mail.example.com" -From "[email protected]" -To "[email protected]" -Subject "Daily Report"
