Get-DPMChildDatasource

Returns the protectable file system objects in a data source.

Syntax

Get-DPMChildDatasource [-ChildDatasource] <ProtectableObject> [[-ProtectionGroup] <ProtectionGroup>] [-Async]
 [-Inquire] [-Tag <Object>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-DPMChildDatasource cmdlet returns the protectable file system objects, such as folders, that are in a data source, such as a file system volume.
You can protect file systems at the child data source level, but you can protect applications only at the data source level.

Examples

Example 1: Get a child data source

PS C:\> $PGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup -DPMServerName "DPMServer07"
PS C:\> $PObjects = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $PGroup
PS C:\> Get-DPMChildDatasource -ChildDatasource $PObjects[1] -Inquire
The first command gets all protection groups from the DPM server named DPMServer07, and then stores these groups in the $PGroup variable. You cannot edit these protection groups. The second command gets the data source for the list of protection groups in $PGroup, and then stores this data source in the $PObjects variable. The final command gets a list of the child data sources from element 1 of the $PObjects array variable. The command uses the Inquire parameter. Therefore, the command queries the protected computer.
