Add-HyperFlexHost

Short Description

Adds Cisco HyperFlex storage systems to the backup infrastructure.

Important

This cmdlet is available starting from Veeam Backup & Replication 11a (build 11.0.1.1261).

Applies to

Product Edition: Standard, Enterprise, Enterprise Plus, Veeam Universal License

Syntax

This cmdlet provides parameter sets that allow you to:

  • Add storage systems by user name and password.

Add-HyperFlexHost -Name <string> -UserName <string> -Password <string> [-Description <string>] [-Proxy <IProxy[]>] [-Force] [-SkipRescan]  [<CommonParameters>]

  • Add storage systems by credentials.

Add-HyperFlexHost -Name <string> -Credentials <CInternalCredentials> [-Description <string>] [-Proxy <IProxy[]>] [-Force] [-SkipRescan]  [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

This cmdlet adds the Cisco HyperFlex storage systems to the backup infrastructure.

When you add storage systems to your backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication performs a rescan of storage systems. During the rescan Veeam Backup & Replication retrieves information about the storage system topology and adds storage volumes to the backup infrastructure.

For more information about the rescan, see the Adding Storage Systems section of the User Guide for VMware vSphere.

Tip

Use the SkipRescan parameter to skip the automatic rescan.

To rescan storage systems manually, run Sync-HyperFlexHost to rescan of the entire storage system.
