Start-VBRReplicaFailover with PowerShell

Veeam Logoby » Fri May 06, 2011 6:57 pm

A client asked me to create a script to start a failover of a particular replicated VM using an icon
By surfing a little bit on the net I found a good start but I still not found how to do it.
Here are the actual script I working on!

I need to stop the original VM named xxx and then failover to the latest copy of the VM xxx to the second VMWARE Server
I appreciate any help to complete this request!

if((Get-PSSnapin -Name VeeamPSSnapIn -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null){
Add-PSSnapin "VeeamPSSnapIn"

$yes = New-Object System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription "&Yes",""
$no = New-Object System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription "&No",""
$choices = [System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription[]]($yes,$no)
$caption = "Attention!"
$message = "Do you really want to start the failover VM for machine xxx ?"
$result = $Host.UI.PromptForChoice($caption,$message,$choices,0)
if($result -eq 0)
Write-Host "Starting the failover of the machine xxx"
(here is the place that I will add the command to do the failover
if($result -eq 1) { Write-Host "You didn't acknoledge to failover!" }
start-sleep 10

Hi Claude,

You look to be our ProPartner.

Please go to the ProPartner portal, click Learning Center, click Technical papers and look for "Smart Recovery Orchestration" paper by Arseny Chernov. It seems to be leveraging similar script as a part of the process.

Hope this helps.
