Creates new replication job.
Add-VBRReplicaJob [-Name] <String> [[-Type] <String>] [-Server] <CHost> [-Datastore] <Datastore> -Objects <String> [-Suffix <String>] [-Description <String>] [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningVariable <String>] [<CommonParameters>]
This cmdlet allows you to create a new replication job.
Replication is a process of copying a VM from its primary location (source host) to a destination location (redundant target host). Veeam Backup & Replication creates an exact copy of a VM (replica), registers it on the target host and maintains it in synch with the original VM.
Note that when you create a replica job, you need to run it manually unless you enable a job schedule.
Run Start-VBRJob to start the created job.
Run Set-VBRJobSchedule to set schedule for the job.
Specifies the string with the name you want to assign to the replication job.
Specifies the string with the type of the created replication job which defines how VM data is retrieved:
Specifies the host where the created replica should be stored.
Specifies the datastore where the created replica should reside.
Specifies the string with the names of VMs that you want to replicate.
Specifies the suffix that will be appended to the name of the VM you are replicating. This name will be used to register the replicated VM on the target server.
Specifies the description of the replica job.
This cmdlet supports Microsoft PowerShell common parameters. For more information on common parameters, see the About CommonParameters section of Microsoft Docs.
This example allows you to create a replication job with the following parameters:
- Name of a replication job: Replica1
- Replication type: VDDK
- Variable which contains target host DNS name or IP address: $server
- Variable which contains datastore name: $datastore
- Replicated VM: vm4
Add-VBRReplicaJob –Name “Replica1”–Type VDDK –Server $server –Datastore $datastore
