About the snapshot information that can be obtained by the Get-VBRRestorePoint command

Post by Asahi »

Hi,

I have a question about Veeam's PowerShell. :D
There is a command called Get-VBRRestorePoint.

For example, I ran it like this
===
Get-VBRRestorePoint -Name "Tiny"
===
This VM called "Tiny" is included in Veeam replication job.
On the replication job side, I set the Restore Point as "1".

At this time, I thought that only one result will be returned.
However, five Restore Points were returned. :shock:
In all five cases, the Type was Snapshot. :?

I investigated the remaining four Restore Points.
I found out that they were HPE Nimble storage snapshots registered to Storage Infrastructure.

Both the restore points created by the Veeam replication job and the restore points created by the Nimble storage snapshot have a Type of "Snapshot".
Is there any way to tell the difference?

Kind Regards,
Asahi,

Hi,

Yes, you have 2 options.

Option 1 - Get replica objects, then get restore points for them explicitly:

Code: Select all

$replicas = Get-VBRReplica -Name 'Replica'
Get-VBRRestorePoint -Backup $replicas
Option 2 - Differentiate restore points directly by finding out the result of invoking IsReplica() method:

Code: Select all

$restorePoints = Get-VBRRestorePoint -Name 'VM Name'
foreach ($rp in $restorePoints) {
  if ($rp.IsReplica() -eq $true) {
    $isReplica = $true
  }
  else {
    $isReplica = $false
  }
  $rp | select Name, CreationTime, Type, @{n='IsReplica';e={$isReplica}}
} 
Thanks,
Oleg
