Mount-DPMRecoveryPoint

Mounts the replica or recovery point VHD of a data source.

Syntax

Mount-DPMRecoveryPoint [-Datasource] <Datasource> [[-RecoveryPoint] <RecoverySource>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf]
 [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Mount-DPMRecoveryPoint cmdlet mounts the replica or recovery point VHD of the specified data source. After you have finished using the mounted VHD, dismount it by running the Dismount-DPMRecoveryPoint cmdlet. Keeping the VHDs mounted can result in backup job failures.

Examples

Example 1: Mount a replica VHD

PS C:\>$ProtectionGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup
PS C:\> $DataSource = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $ProtectionGroup[0]
PS C:\> Mount-DPMRecoveryPoint -Datasource $DataSource[0]

The first command uses the Get-DPMProtectionGroup cmdlet to get the protection groups on the Data Protection Manager (DPM) server, and then stores them in the $ProtectionGroup variable.

The second command uses the Get-DPMDatasource cmdlet to get the data sources in the first protection group of the $ProtectionGroup array. The command stores the data sources in the $DataSource variable.

The third command mounts the replica VHD of the first data source in the $DataSource array.

Example 2: Mount a recovery point VHD

PS C:\>$ProtectionGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup
PS C:\> $DataSource = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $ProtectionGroup[0]
PS C:\> $RecoveryPoints = Get-DPMRecoveryPoint -Datasource $Datasource[0]
PS C:\> Mount-DPMRecoveryPoint -Datasource $DataSource[0] -RecoveryPoint $RecoveryPoints[0]

The first command uses the Get-DPMProtectionGroup cmdlet to get the protection groups on the Data Protection Manager (DPM) server, and then stores them in the $ProtectionGroup variable.

The second command uses the Get-DPMDatasource cmdlet to get the data sources in the first protection group of the $ProtectionGroup array. The command stores the data sources in the $DataSource variable.

The third command uses the Get-DPMRecoveryPoint cmdlet to get the recovery points of the first data source in the $DataSource array, and then stores them in the $RecoveryPoints variable.

The fourth command mounts the VHD corresponding to the first recovery point in the $RecoveryPoints array.
