Can I backup and restore application item (for instance sql db), via powershell direct ?. There are some cases where I would like that VM does not have direct connection to the backup network, but I would like to be able to recover to item level. Example: We have a large sql server that is on separate vlan secured by firewall. If I want to do restore of large db on that server, I am limited with firewall throughput. Yes, I can do a separate vNIC and have a direct connection, but it's additional overhead.
