Create Replication Job with Folders

Post by damtux »

Hi,

I have to create more than 80 Replication Jobs within Powershell and I have a last issue I can't resolve.

I would like to replicate a Folder not a VM but I get stuck with Veeam Powershell...

I use Add-VBRViReplicaJob successfully when using -Entity to point to a VM but How to point to a Folder instead ?

When I use Find-VBRViEntity -name "Folder1" it doesn't retrieve any object

THanks for your help !

You could use PowerCLI.

Get-vm -location xyz

Add the VMs returned to the script so you backup each VM in the folder!

This was a little harder to dig up, but this still works in version 6:

This will allow you to add a folder just by giving a VM listed in that folder, which you only have to do once :)
