ForceVirtualStandby

Exporting data from a protected machine to a virtual machine creates a virtual standby machine. If you have continuous virtual export set up, you can use this command to force Rapid Recovery to export data on demand, regardless of the predetermined schedule.

Usage

The usage for the command is as follows:

/forcevirtualstandby -core [host name] -user [user name] -password [password login] -protectedserver [name] | -all

Command Options

The following table describes the options available for the ForceVirtualStandby command:

-protectedserver
The name or space-separated names of virtualized machines.
-all
This command specifies whether to force all scheduled virtual exports.

Examples:

Force all virtual standby exports:

>cmdutil /forcevirtualstandby -all

List

The list command returns information about all recovery points, active jobs, completed jobs, failed jobs, invalid (failed) recovery points, valid (passed) recovery points, mounts, protected servers, volumes, virtualized servers, unprotected volumes, clusters, protection groups, SQL databases, Exchange databases, replicated servers, and repositories for the specified agent or list of servers currently protected by the Core. The most recent records return by default. You can list all records or specify how many records display by using a number parameter. This parameter should contain the letter "l" for the latest recovery points and "f" for the first recovery point. Each recovery point has its own number, which the administrator can use for mounting.

Usage

The usage for the command is as follows:

/list [rps | passed | failed | mounts | volumes | protectedservers | activejobs | completed jobs | failedjobs | virtualizedservers | unprotectedvolumes | clusters | protectiongroups | sqldatabases | exchangemailstores | replicatedservers | repositories] -protectedserver [name | IP address] -core [host name] -user [user name] -password [password] –number [all | l<number> | f<number> | <number>] -jobtype

Command Options

The following table describes the options available for the list command:
