Examples

Example 1: Modify the size of the replica and recovery point volumes

The first command uses the Get-DPMProtectionGroup cmdlet to get the protection group for the server named Contoso-DPMServer. The command stores the group in the $PGroup variable.

The second command uses the Get-DPMDatasource cmdlet to get all data source objects for the protection group stored in $PSGroup. The command stores the objects in the $PObjects variable.

The last command modifies the size of the replica volume and the shadow copy volume for the second data source object stored in the $PObjects array.

PS C:\> $PGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup -DPMServerName "Contoso-DPMServer"
PS C:\> $PObjects = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $PGroup
PS C:\> Edit-DPMDiskAllocation -Datasource $PObjects[1] -ReplicaSize 5368709120 -ShadowCopySize 3221225472
