Description

The Start-AzureStorSimpleDeviceFailoverJob cmdlet initiates a failover operation of one or more volume container groups from one device to another.

Examples

Example 1: Start a failover job for a named device and named target device

PS C:\>(Get-AzureStorSimpleFailoverVolumeContainers -DeviceName "ChewD_App7") | Where-Object {$_.IsDCGroupEligibleForDR -eq $True} | Start-AzureStorSimpleDeviceFailoverJob -DeviceName "ChewD_App7" -TargetDeviceName "Fuller05" -Force

This command gets the failover volume containers for the device named ChewD_App7 by using the Get-AzureStorSimpleFailoverVolumeContainers cmdlet. The command passes the results to the Where-Object cmdlet, which drops those containers that have a value other than $True for the IsDCGroupEligibleForDR property. For more information, type Get-Help Where-Object. The current cmdlet starts failover jobs for the remaining failover volume containers. The command specifies the device name and target device name. The command returns the instance ID of the job that the cmdlet starts.

Example 2: Start a failover job for a device and target device specified by ID

PS C:\>(Get-AzureStorSimpleFailoverVolumeContainers -DeviceId "3825f272-1efb-4c14-b63f-22605ce3b925") | Where-Object {$_.IsDCGroupEligibleForDR -eq $True} | Select-Object -First 1 | Start-AzureStorSimpleDeviceFailoverJob -DeviceId "3825f272-1efb-4c14-b63f-22605ce3b925" -TargetDeviceId "0ee59ae9-0293-46e2-ae56-bc308c8e5520" -Force

This command gets the failover volume containers for the device named ChewD_App7 by using Get-AzureStorSimpleFailoverVolumeContainers. The command passes the results to Where-Object, which drops those containters that have a value other than $True for the IsDCGroupEligibleForDR property. The cmdlet passes the results to the Select-Object cmdlet, which selects the first object to pass to the current cmdlet. For more information, type Get-Help Select-Object. The current cmdlet starts failover jobs for the selected failover volume container. The command specifies the device ID and target device ID. The command returns the instance ID of the job that the cmdlet starts.
