   [-CloudProtectedDPMServer] <CloudBackupServer>

Description

The Get-DPMCloudDatasource cmdlet gets a list of cloud-protected data sources that are protected by a System Center 2016 - Data Protection Manager (DPM) Server registered to the same vault as the local DPM Server. This cmdlet can be used to get the data sources so that data can be recovered from the cloud recovery points of the data sources.

Examples

Example 1: Get cloud-protected data sources from a server

PS C:\> $RS = Get-DPMCloudRegisteredServers -VaultCredentialsFilePath "DPMTESTVault_Friday, September 5, 2014.VaultCredentials"
PS C:\> $Passphrase = ConvertTo-SecureString -string "passphrase123456789" -AsPlainText -Force
PS C:\> $CPD = Get-DPMCloudDatasource -CloudProtectedDPMServer $RS[0] -EncryptionPassphrase $Passphrase

The first command returns the servers registered to the vault for which vault credential file is DPMTESTVault_Friday, September 5, 2014.VaultCredentials.

The second command converts the string passphrase123456789 to a secure string and assigns the secure string to the variable named $Passphrase.

The third command returns the cloud-protected data sources from the first server in the list of servers returned by first command.
