  • To remove selected helper appliances, run the 2nd parameter set and enumerate only those helper appliances that must remain.
  • To deploy a new helper appliance or a number of new helper appliances, run the 2nd parameter set and pass an array of helper appliances you want to deploy. Note that if there are any existing helper appliances already deployed for this account that you want to keep, you must include them in the array.
  • To modify settings of an existing helper appliance or helper appliances, run the 2nd parameter set and pass an array of existing helper appliances with different settings.

Deploy-VBRAzureLinuxRestoreAppliance Important!

This cmdlet always deploys the helper appliances anew. The array of helper appliances that you pass to this cmdlet must contain all helper appliances that you want to be associated with the account.

Mind the following:

  • If there are existing helper appliances associated with this account, but which you do not include in the array you pass, the cmdlet will remove them.
  • If there are existing helper appliances associated with this account, and you pass them with different settings, the cmdlet will re-deploy them with the new settings.
