Description

The Get-DPMRecoverableItem cmdlet gets a list of recoverable items in a recovery point for System Center 2016 - Data Protection Manager (DPM). The recoverable items based on source are as follows:

  • File system: Files and folders
  • Microsoft Exchange Server: Storage groups, databases, and mailboxes
  • Microsoft SQL Server: Databases
  • Microsoft SharePoint: Sites, databases, and documents
  • Virtual Machines
  • A DPM server
  • System state of a protected computer

Examples

Example 1: Get a recoverable item in a recovery point

PS C:\> $PGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup -DPMServerName "DPMServer02"
PS C:\> $PObjects = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $PGroup
PS C:\> $RPoint = Get-DPMRecoveryPoint -Datasource $PObjects
PS C:\> Get-DPMRecoverableItem -RecoverableItem $RPoint -BrowseType Child

The first command gets the protection group on the DPM server named DPMServer02, and then stores the group in the $PGroup variable.

The second command gets the list of protected and unprotected data in the protection group in $PGroup. The command stores the result in the $PObjects variable.

The third command gets the recovery point for the protection group in $PObjects variable, and then stores the recovery point in the $RPoint variable.

The final command gets the recoverable items in the parent and child nodes of the recovery point in $RPoint.
