    Add-VSBApplicationGroup (obsolete) Note:

    This cmdlet is obsolete. The cmdlet still works, but it is recommended to create backup to tape copy jobs using Add-VSBViApplicationGroup or Add-VSBHvApplicationGroup cmdlets.

    Applies to

    Platform: VMware

    Syntax

    Add-VSBApplicationGroup [-Name] <String> [-Vm] <CVm[]> [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningVariable <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

    -OR-

    Add-VSBApplicationGroup [-Name] <String> [-RestorePoint] <COib[]> [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningVariable <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet creates a new VMware application group.

    An application group is a component of SureBackup technology providing verification of virtual machines that need other virtual machines or services running, i.e. a domain controller, a DNS server or SQL database. To test such machines for recoverability, you need to create a SureBackup job and provide the copy of the production architecture running in a fenced-off environment that is performed by creating a virtual lab and an application group. The VMs in the application group are started first to ensure the proper testing environment for the primary VM.

    Note that you can set the order the VMs in the application group will be powered on when the SureBackup job starts. This may be important if any of the applications must be started prior to other. The VMs are powered in the order they were added to the VM object in this cmdlet.
