Description

The Enable-AzRecoveryServicesBackupProtection cmdlet enables the backup by associating a protection policy with the item. If policy ID is not present or the backup item is not associated with any policy, then this command will expect a policyID. Set the vault context by using the Set-AzRecoveryServicesVaultContext cmdlet before you use the current cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Enable Backup protection for an item

PS C:\> $Pol = Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupProtectionPolicy -Name "DefaultPolicy"
PS C:\> $inclusionDiskLUNS = ("1", "2")
PS C:\> Enable-AzRecoveryServicesBackupProtection -Policy $Pol -Name "V2VM" -ResourceGroupName "RGName1" -InclusionDisksList $inclusionDiskLUNS
WorkloadName    Operation        Status          StartTime                  EndTime
------------    ---------        ------          ---------                  -------
co03-vm         ConfigureBackup  Completed       11-Apr-16 12:19:49 PM      11-Apr-16 12:19:54 PM

The first cmdlet gets a default policy object, and then stores it in the $Pol variable. The second cmdlet specifies the disk LUNs which are to be backed up and stores it in $inclusionDiskLUNS variable. The third cmdlet sets the Backup protection policy for the ARM virtual machine named V2VM using the policy in $Pol.

Example 2
