This example shows how to define the retention policy for a backup job.
You will need to perform the following steps:
- Run New-VBRJobOptions to get the object with the default backup job settings. Save the result to the $retention variable.
- Edit the backup storage settings. Use the RetainCycles parameter of the BackupStorageOptions object to specify the number of restore points.
- Run Get-VBRJob to get the job to which you want to apply the retention policy. Save the result to the $job variable.
- Run Set-VBRJobOptions with the $job and $retention variables to apply the retention policy.
$retention = New-VBRJobOptions -ForBackupJob
$retention.BackupStorageOptions.RetainCycles = 7
$job = Get-VBRJob -Name "ABC Backup"
Set-VBRJobOptions -Job $job -Options $retention
This command applies custom settings to the backup job named "Backup Job 01". The job object is obtained with Get-VBRJob and piped down. The object containing the set of customized options is obtained with New-VBRJobOptions and assigned to the $options variable beforehand.
Get-VBRJob -Name "Backup Job 01" | Set-VBRJobOptions -Options $options
This command applies custom settings to the backup job represented by the $job variable. The job object is obtained with Get-VBRJob and assigned to the variable beforehand. The object containing the set of customized options is obtained with New-VBRJobOptions and assigned to the $options variable beforehand.
