Examples

Example 1: Resume backing up production servers

PS C:\>$DpmPServer = Get-DPMProductionServer -DPMServerName "DPMServer07"
PS C:\> Resume-DPMBackup -DPMServerName "DPMServer07" -ProductionServer $DpmPServer

The first command uses the Get-DPMProductionServer cmdlet to get the production servers for the DPM server named DPMServer07. The command stores the results in the $DpmPServer variable.

The second command resumes backing up the production servers in $DpmPServer for the DPM server named DPMServer07.
