Get-VBRJob getlaststate method

Post by pizzim13 »

Are there states other than "Working" and Stopped" for a backup job when using Get-VBRJob's getlaststate method?

I am looking for the ones you don't normally see (if they even exist). There could have been an "Initializing" state that came and went before you ran get-vbrjob or there could be a set of errors states.

I kicked off the job from powershell and right after that stuck it in a loop

Code: Select all

$a = Get-VBRJob | ?{$_.Name -eq "JobName" }

do {
	Add-Content "c:\output.txt" $a.GetLastState()
} while ( $a.GetLastState() -ne "Stopped" )
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4304771/state.txt

if there are any more then they must be hard to catch as you can see by my state.txt

As always Peter :D

Code: Select all

public enum EState
    {
      Stopped = -1,
      Starting = 3,
      Stopping = 4,
      Working = 5,
      Pausing = 6,
      Resuming = 7,
    }

Probably placed in there for possibilities, but pausing would just be all sorts of bad with snapshots :D
