Syntax

This cmdlet provides parameter sets that allow you to:

  • Add storage systems by user name and password

Add-VBRIsilonHost -Name <string> -UserName <string> -Password <string> [-Description <string>] [-Port <int>] [-NASProxy <VBRNASProxyServer[]>] [-SkipRescan] [-Force] [-NASSMB] [-NASNFS] [-NASCreateRulesAutomatically] [<CommonParameters>]

  • Add storage systems by credentials

Add-VBRIsilonHost -Name <string> -Credentials <CInternalCredentials> [-Description <string>] [-Port <int>] [-NASProxy <VBRNASProxyServer[]>] [-SkipRescan] [-Force] [-NASSMB] [-NASNFS] [-NASCreateRulesAutomatically] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

This cmdlet adds selected Dell EMC Isilon 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.

Add-VBRIsilonHost Tip:

Provide the SkipRescan parameter to skip the automatic rescan.

To rescan storage systems manually, use the following cmdlets:
