Examples

Modifying Backup Copy Interval

This example shows how to modify the backup copy interval. The backup copy job will run every five hours.

$job = Get-VBRJob -Name "EC2 BCJ 01"

$interval = Get-VBRRecoveryPointObjective -Job $job

$newinterval = Set-VBRRecoveryPointObjective -RecoveryPointObjective $interval -Value 5 -Unit Hour

Perform the following steps:

  1. Run the Get-VBRJob cmdlet. Specify the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $job variable.
  2. Run the Get-VBRRecoveryPointObjective cmdlet. Set the $job variable as the Job parameter value. Save the result to the $interval variable.
  3. Run the Set-VBRRecoveryPointObjective cmdlet. Specify the following settings:
  • Set the $interval variable as the RecoveryPointObjective parameter value.
  • Specify the Value parameter value.
  • Set the Hour value for the Unit parameter.
  • Save the result to the $newinterval variable to apply the settings to the backup copy job.
