    Example 1

    This example shows how to save Veeam Recovery Media in the ISO file format.

    You will need to perform the following steps:

    1. Run New-VBRRecoveryMediaISOTarget to create the path for the ISO file. Save the result to the $isopath variable.
    2. Run Get-VBRDiscoveredComputer. Use the Where-Object method to get the computer for which you want to create Veeam Recovery Media. Save the result to the $computer variable.
    3. Run Add-VBRDiscoveredComputerRecoveryMedia with the $isopath and $computer variables to save Veeam Recovery Media in the ISO file format.

    $isopath = New-VBRRecoveryMediaISOTarget -Path "c:\image.iso"

    $computer = Get-VBRDiscoveredComputer | Where {$_.name -eq "support.east.local"}

    Add-VBRDiscoveredComputerRecoveryMedia -DiscoveredComputer $computer -RecoveryMediaTarget $isopath

    Example 2

    This example shows how to create Veeam Recovery Media on a removable storage device.

    You will need to perform the following steps:

    1. Run Get-VBRDiscoveredComputer with the Where-Object method to get the computer for which you want to create Veeam Recovery Media. Save the result to the $computer variable.
    2. Run Get-VBRRecoveryMediaTarget with the Type parameter and the Where-Object method to get the removable storage device where you want to create Veeam Recovery Media. Save the result to the $removable variable.
    3. Run Add-VBRDiscoveredComputerRecoveryMedia with the $computer and $removable variables.

    $computer = Get-VBRDiscoveredComputer | Where {$_.name -eq "support.east.local"}

    $removable = Get-VBRRecoveryMediaTarget -Type RemovableDevice | Where {$_.Description -eq "RECOVERY (F:)"}

    Add-VBRDiscoveredComputerRecoveryMedia -DiscoveredComputer $computer -RecoveryMediaTarget $removable
