Recatalogs the data on a tape.

Syntax

Start-DPMTapeRecatalog [-Tape] <Media[]> [-JobStateChangedEventHandler <JobStateChangedEventHandler>]
 [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Start-DPMTapeRecatalog cmdlet recatalogs the data on a tape. System Center 2016 - Data Protection Manager (DPM) performs this operation before it starts data recovery data from an imported tape.

A recatalog operation determines the recovery points for data on the tape.

Examples

Example 1: Recatalog data on a tape

PS C:\>$DpmLibrary = Get-DPMLibrary -DPMServerName "Contoso-DPMServer"
PS C:\> $DpmTape = Get-DPMTape -DPMLibrary $DpmLibrary
PS C:\> Start-DPMTapeRecatalog -Tape $DpmTape[2]

The first command uses the Get-DPMLibrary cmdlet to get the library for the server named Contoso-DPMServer. The command stores it in the $DpmLibrary variable.

The second command uses the Get-DPMTape cmdlet to get the tapes in the library, and then stores the result in the $DpmTape variable.

The third command recatalogs the data.
