Examples

Example 1: Unregister a DPM server from Windows Azure Online Backup

This example unregisters a DPM server from Windows Azure Online Backup.

The first command converts the string myPassword to a secure string and assigns the secure string to the variable named $Secpasswd.

The second command creates a new PSCredential object from the username sjones@contoso.com and the secure password in $Secpasswd, then assigns the object to the variable named $Mycreds.

The third command unregisters the DPM server named TestingServer from the Windows Azure Online Backup service by using the credential in $Mycreds.

PS C:\> $Secpasswd = ConvertTo-SecureString "myPassword" -AsPlainText -Force
PS C:\> $Mycreds = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("sjones@contoso.com", $Secpasswd)
PS C:\> Start-DPMCloudUnregistration -DPMServerName "TestingServer" -Credential $Mycreds
