Detailed Description

This cmdlet creates plug-in backup copy jobs. To create plug-in backup copy jobs, you must specify at least one source that contains the data you want to add to the copy job. Plug-in backup copy jobs use either of the following sources:

  • The existing plug-in backup job created to back up Oracle RMAN or SAP HANA. Run the Get-VBRPluginJob cmdlet to get the plug-in backup job.
  • Backup files that are stored in the source repositories. Run the Get-VBRBackupRepository cmdlet to get the source repository.

 

Add-VBRPluginBackupCopyJob Note:

The backup copy job is created in the disabled state. Run the Enable-VBRPluginJob cmdlet to run the job manually.
