  • new-dpmrecoverypoint for hyperV
    1 Posts | Last post February 21, 2013
    • Hello, 
      I try to make dpm recoverypoints (for hyper-V machine) with your script.
      but that doesn't seem to work as powershell 3 tells me 
      New-DPMRecoveryPoint : Cannot bind parameter 'Datasource'. Cannot convert the 
      "Microsoft.Internal.EnterpriseStorage.Dls.UI.ObjectModel.HyperVDS.HyperVDatasource" value of type 
      "Microsoft.Internal.EnterpriseStorage.Dls.UI.ObjectModel.HyperVDS.HyperVDatasource" to type 
      I used 
      $j = New-DPMRecoveryPoint -DataSource $dds -Disk -BackupType ExpressFull -ProtectionType ShortTerm
      where $dds is the first [0] hyperV machine of the first [0] protectiongroup.
      When I list  $dds it shows me the correct machine.
      Is there a way to make recoverypoints for hyperV Machines with powershell 3 ?

    • The sample code is based on Powershell but it is incorrectly categorized under VBScript.
      In addition, the DPM 2010 RTM Help file for New-RecoveryPoint has missing info for:
              Indicates the type of protection.
              Required?                    true
