Detailed Description

This cmdlet adds a selected Dell EMC VNX storage to Veeam Backup & Replication.

When you add a storage to your management console, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically rescans the storage infrastructure. To rescan the storage infrastructure manually, run Sync-VNXHost or Sync-VNXVolume.

When adding a storage, you will need to provide either username/password or credentials. Use an appropriate parameter set for each case.
