Performs a consistency check on a DPM data source.

Syntax

Start-DPMDatasourceConsistencyCheck [-Datasource] <Datasource> [[-AdhocJobsContext] <AdhocJobsContext>]
 [-ForcedFullCC] [-HeavyWeight] [-JobStateChangedEventHandler <JobStateChangedEventHandler>] [-Confirm]
 [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]
Start-DPMDatasourceConsistencyCheck [-ProtectionGroup] <ProtectionGroup>
 [[-AdhocJobsContext] <AdhocJobsContext>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Start-DPMDatasourceConsistencyCheck cmdlet performs a consistency check on a System Center 2016 - Data Protection Manager (DPM) data source. You can run consistency checks on a specific data source or on all data sources in a protection group that are in an inconsistent state.

Examples

Example 1: Start a consistency check on a data source

PS C:\>$PGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup -DPMServerName TestingServer
PS C:\> $PObject = Get-DPMDatasource $PGroup[0]
PS C:\> Start-DPMDatasourceConsistencyCheck -Datasource $PObject

The first command gets the protection groups from the server named TestingServer by using the Get-DPMProtectionGroup cmdlet. The command stores them in the $PGroup variable.

The second command gets the data source for the first protection group in $PGroup, and then stores the data source in the $Ds variable.

The third command runs a consistency check on the data source that is stored in $Ds.
