Examples

Comparing Backed-Up Objects with Objects on Production Object Storage

This example shows how to compare backed-up objects with objects on production object storage.

$restorepoint = Get-VBRUnstructuredBackupRestorePoint -ID "51e4eced-3fce-465b-b516-f24cb5a068a4"

$session = Start-VBRUnstructuredBackupFLRSession -RestorePoint $restorepoint[3]

$item = Get-VBRUnstructuredBackupFLRItem -Session $session

Compare-VBRUnstructuredBackupFLRItem -Item $item[0,1,4,5] -Session $session

Perform the following steps:

  1. Run the Get-VBRUnstructuredBackupRestorePoint cmdlet. Specify the ID parameter value. Save the result to the $restorepoint variable.

The Get-VBRUnstructuredBackupRestorePoint cmdlet will return an array of restore points. Mind the ordinal number of the necessary restore point (in our example, it is the fourth restore point in the array).

  1. Run the Start-VBRUnstructuredBackupFLRSession cmdlet. Specify the RestorePoint parameter value. Save the result to the $session variable.
  2. Run the Get-VBRUnstructuredBackupFLRItem cmdlet. Specify the Session parameter value. Save the result to the $item variable.
  3. Run the Compare-VBRUnstructuredBackupFLRItem cmdlet. Set the $item[0,1,4,5] variable as the Item parameter value. Set the $session variable as the Session parameter value.
