    Example 2

    This example shows how to add an IBM Spectrum Virtualize storage to Veeam Backup & Replication.

    You will need to perform the following steps:

    1. Run Get-VBRStoragePlugin to get the list of installed storage Plug-ins. To add the IBM Spectrum Virtualize storage system to Veeam Backup & Replication, you will need the IBM Plug-in.
    2. Run Get-VBRCredentials to get the credentials record for the storage. Save the result to the $credentials variable.
    3. Run Get-VBRViProxy to get the backup proxy that will be used for storage rescan and Backup from Storage Snapshots. Save the result to the $proxy variable.
    4. Run Add-StoragePluginHost with the $credentials and $proxy variables.
