    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet creates vCD replication jobs.

    Note that when you create a vCD replication jobs, you need to run it manually unless you enable a job schedule.

    Run the Start-VBRvCDReplicaJob cmdlet to run the job manually.

    Examples

    Creating vDC Replication Job

    This example shows how to create the vCD_05j vDC replication job to replicate the AvP04 vApp to the Org07 Organization vDC.

    $vapp = Find-VBRvCloudEntity -Name "AvP04" -VApp

    $orgvdc = Find-VBRvCloudEntity -Name "Org07" -OrganizationVdc

    Add-VBRvCDReplicaJob -SourceObject $vapp -OrganizationVdc $orgvdc -Name "vCD_05j" -Description "AvP04 replica"
