    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet creates an application group containing virtual machines that the application server is dependent on.

    You can add to the same application groups VMs from backups and VMs from replicas. All VMs from the application group must have at least one valid restore point created by the time the SureBackup job starts.

    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.

    Example 1

    This command creates a new application group named "Microsoft Exchange Appgroup". The VMs that should be included into the application group are obtained with Find-VBRViEntity and piped down. The VMs are obtained in the order they must boot when the SureBackup job starts.

    Find-VBRViEntity -Name "DC", "DNSServer" | Add-VSBViApplicationGroup -Name "Microsoft Exchange Appgroup"

    Example 2

    This command creates a new application group "MailServer Appgroup". The restore point object is obtained with Get-VBRRestorePoint and assigned to the variable beforehand.

    Add-VSBViApplicationGroup -Name "MailServer Appgroup" -RestorePoint $restorepoint
