Example 1: Update a production group

The first command gets the protection group on the DPM server named DPMServer02, and then stores the results in the $PGroup variable.

The second command gets the list of protected and unprotected data in the protection group in $PGroup. The command stores the results in the $PObjects variable.

The third command updates the protection group in $PGroup with a data source in $PObjects.

PS C:\> $PGroup = Get-DPMProtectionGroup -DPMServerName "DPMServer02"
PS C:\> $PObject = Get-DPMDatasource -ProtectionGroup $PGroup
PS C:\> Update-DPMProtectionGroup -ProtectionGroup $PGroup -Datasource $PObject[0] -Inquire
