I have about 5000 files that need to be restored in a text document. I have never used Veeam from PowerShell before and am a PowerShell neophyte.
First is there any way I can restore all the files listed in a text document without using powershell? I am assuming not.
Per the Veeam B&R powershell reference guide I can use Start-VBRRestoreVMFiles for this. The following example is given.
Start-VBRRestoreVMFiles –RestorePoint $point –Server $host –Path “C:\BackupFiles”
I know how to get the $host for this, but how do I get a restore point other than the first or last one.
get-vbrrestorepoint -backup (Get-VBRbackup -name "MYBACKUPJOB") -name MYVMNAME
I can use the above command to get a list of restore points and use select to get the last one. How do I get one from a specific date. The one I want looks like this.
MYVMNAME 11/19/2013 8:04:57 PM Increment False
Also, if I exclude the -Path variable, will the files restore to their original location?
