Veeam B&R v5 PowerShell - BackupJob How getting folder

Post by at25345 » Nov 08, 2013 7:39 am

Hi.

I am sorry in awkward English.

I am going to get the folder path of a backup job using Powershell of Veeam Backup and Replication v5.
However, even if it uses which command let, the folder path of a backup job is not found.

Would you help, if there are those familiar?

Thank you. :)

Hi, Takahiro.

Nowadays the backup file directory can be gotten via the following script:

Code: Select all

Get-VBRBackup -name "Name of your backup" | Select-Object {$_.dirPath}


However, I’m not sure whether the said script should work in case of version 5. Actually, you’d better upgrade to the latest product version, since version 5 isn’t supported any longer. Let alone, the variety of improvements and fixes that has been implemented since that time.

Thanks.

Hi, Vladimir.

Thank you very much for the reply.

But regrettably the good result was not obtained.

The "InitialPassDir" object of Get-VBRJobOptions considered that I might have a folder name.

However, even if it changed various JOB setup, the value was empty and it was not able to see change to it.

Is "InitialPassDir" unfamiliar in what carries out what kind of role?

Since I don’t have access to v5 console, it’s rather hard to say what particular command should be used in order to get the path of backup repository. As an additional option, you can try the following script and see whether it makes any difference:

Code: Select all

$Job = Get-VBRJob -name "Name of backup job"
$Job.info.TargetDir 
Anyway, what is the reason to use such an obsolete product version?

Thanks.

It is wonderful!

Difficulty was able to be safely overcome by your favor.
I can sleep slowly now. :)

Since there are various restrictions, such as an old related system, money, etc., it is unavoidable that this old version must be used.

Thank you very much.

Glad to hear that my input was helpful. As to usage of obsolete version, please be aware that version 5 isn't supported any longer, as it's more than two years old. In other words, should anything happen, you will be by your own.

Thanks.
