Description

The Start-WBHyperVRecovery cmdlet starts a recovery operation for a hv_win8_1 virtual machine (VM). Use the application array from a WBBackupSet object to specify the VMs that you want to recover.

For an overview of hv_win8_2, see HyperV Overviewhttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831531.aspx (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831531.aspx) on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Recover a VM to its original location

PS C:\>$Backup = Get-WBBackupSet PS C:\> Start-WBHyperVRecovery -BackupSet $Backup -VMInBackup $Backup.Application[0].Component[0]

WARNING: The virtual machines may not start if the network settings are
different after recovery. Verify the settings of the virtual machines using
HyperV Manager before attempting to start.

Recovering component 285CEA9B-E337-44E1-9BF9-BF431BC3EB35 :
Application recovery in progress.
Completed.

This example recovers a VM to its original location.

The first command gets the backup set object from the system catalog and stores it in the variable named $Backup.

The second command uses the backup set stored in $Backup to recover a VM that has the ID 285CEA9B-E337-44E1-9BF9-BF431BC3EB35 to its original location.

Example 2: Recover a VM to an alternate location

PS C:\>$Backup = Get-WBBackupSet PS C:\> Start-WBHyperVRecovery -BackupSet $Backup -VMInBackup $Backup.Application[0].Component[1] -RecoveryTarget F:\Dir1 -AlternateLocation -RecreatePath

WARNING: The virtual machines may not start if the network settings are
different after recovery. Verify the settings of the virtual machines using
HyperV manager before attempting to start.
WARNING: If a virtual machine you are trying to recover to alternate location
was backed up from this host, this will delete and overwrite the original
virtual machine if it still exists.

Warning

Recovering component F7D8AAF4-D086-47CC-8264-61F80527BFF4 : Preparing to recover.
Completed.

This example recovers a VM to an alternate location.

The first command gets the backup set object from the system catalog and stores it in the variable named $Backup.

The second command recovers the VM that has the ID F7D8AAF4-D086-47CC-8264-61F80527BFF4 to an alternate location.

Required Parameters

-BackupSet

Specifies a backup set object that contains a hv_win8_2 application backup.

Type:WBBackupSet
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMInBackup

Specifies a list of virtual machine objects that contain the VMs to recover. This list must contain VMs from the hv_win8_2 application object in the backup set's application array.

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

Optional Parameters

-Async

Indicates that Windows PowerShell® returns immediately after it starts the recovery and does not display status messages.

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

Indicates that the cmdlet starts the recovery operation without prompting you for confirmation. By default, the cmdlet prompts you for confirmation before it proceeds.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:6
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-NoRollForward

Indicates that you can recover a VM from a previous point in time if you select the latest version of the application from the backups. For versions of the application other than the latest version, the operation uses point-in-time recovery by default.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:4
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RecreatePath

Indicates that the recovery operation recreates the original folder structure when it restores a VM. This option applies only if you recover a VM to an alternate location. If you do not specify this option, the recovery puts all files for a component under a single folder.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:8
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TargetPath

Specifies an alternate location in the backup set where the recovery process searches for files.

Type:String
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-UseAlternateLocation

Indicates that you can use the recovery process to recover hv_win8_2 components, update configuration, and register the VM with the hv_win8_2 management service. This option applies only if you recover a VM to an alternate location.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:7
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
