Start-OBRecovery

Recovers the array of OBRecoverableItem objects with the specified recovery options in the OBRecoverableOptions object.

Syntax

Start-OBRecovery
     [-RecoverableItem] <CBRecoverableItem[]>
     [[-RecoveryOption] <CBRecoveryOption>]
     [[-EncryptionPassphrase] <SecureString>]
     [-Async]
     [-Confirm]
     [-WhatIf]

Description

The Start-OBRecovery cmdlet recovers the array of OBRecoverableItem objects with the specified recovery options in OBRecoverableOptions object. In case of Alternate Server Recovery, the credential and encryption passphrase object would be required to do the recovery.

If no recovery option is specified, the following default options will be used.

  1. Restore to original location.
  2. Create copies in case of conflict.
  3. Restore ACLs of the files.

When recovering data to an alternate server restore flow the cmdlet will display an error message if the OBRecoverableOptions object is not specified because there is no default original location in a recovery from another server.

This cmdlet supports WhatIf and Confirm parameters with a medium impact. The medium impact signifies that the cmdlet will not prompt the user for confirmation by default. The WhatIf parameter gives a verbose description of what the cmdlet does without performing any operation. The Confirm parameter specifies whether the cmdlet should prompt the user. Using -Confirm:$FALSE will override the prompt.

To use Microsoft Azure Backup cmdlets, the user needs to be an administrator on the protected machine.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

$sources = Get-OBRecoverableSource



$RP = Get-OBRecoverableItem -Source $sources[0]



$passphrase = Read-Host -Prompt "Enter encryption passphrase" -AsSecureString



$pwd = ConvertTo-SecureString -String Notag00dpa55word -AsPlainText -Force



$cred = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PsCredential -ArgumentList contoso\johnj99, $pwd



$RO = New-OBRecoveryOption -DestinationPath C:\\test -OverwriteType Overwrite



Start-OBRecovery -RecoverableItem $RP -RecoveryOption $RO -EncryptionPassphrase $passphrase -Credential $cred -Async

This example starts a recovery job.

Parameters

-Async

Allows the user to indicate that the cmdlet should run asynchronously. This is useful with cmdlets that take a long time to complete. The control returns to the user immediately after the operation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:5
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EncryptionPassphrase

Specifies the encryption passphrase to be used to decrypt the data for recovery. This should be same as the latest encryption passphrase set for backup. This is required in case of Alternate Server Recovery. In case of Alternate Server Recovery this encryption passphrase should match with the latest encryption passphrase set for backup on the original server.

Type:SecureString
Position:4
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RecoverableItem

Specifies the items to be recovered.

Type:CBRecoverableItem[]
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RecoveryOption

Specifies whether the items recovered should overwrite any existing copies or whether copies of existing items should be created during recovery.

Type:CBRecoveryOption
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

None
