Location path. Example path: ‘D:\work\archive’ or network path: ‘\\servername\sharename’.

Archive recovery points for all machines on the Core.

Optional. Remote Core host machine IP address (with an optional port number). By default the connection is made to the Core installed on the local machine.

Start date of the date range for the created recovery points. Should be in the format specified by the OS on the current PC.

End date of the date range. Defaults to the current time.

Optional. Password to the remote Core host machine. If you specify a password, you also have to provide a user name. If none are provided, then the logged-on user's credentials will be used.

Archive recovery points for the specified machine.

Optional. User name for the remote Core host machine. If you specify a user name, you also have to provide a password. If none are provided, then the logged-on user's credentials will be used.

Optional. Required for network path only.

Optional. Required for network path only.

Optional. Example: -comment 'Before install new application'.

Optional. User name for the remote Core host machine. If you specify a user name, you also have to provide a password. If none are provided, then the logged-on user's credentials will be used.

Optional. Password to the remote Core host machine. If you specify a password, you also have to provide a user name. If none are provided, then the logged-on user's credentials will be used.

The protected machine on which to perform the SQL attachability check.

Optional. The sequential number of a recovery point on which to perform the SQL attachability check.

You can use the -GetRecoveryPoints command to obtain recovery point numbers. You can specify several space-separated numbers to perform the checks against multiple recovery points with a single command.

Optional. Determines recovery point to be selected for SQL attachability check. You need to specify exact time in the format “MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm tt” (for example: “04/24/2015 09:00 AM”).” Specify date time values of the time zone set on your local machine.

Example:

Perform a SQL attachability check on the most recent recovery point for the specified protected SQL server:

>Start-AttachabilityCheck - protectedserver 10.10.9.120

Start-ChecksumCheck

The Start-ChecksumCheck PowerShell command lets you force a checksum check of Exchange Server recovery points.

Usage

If none are provided, then the logged-on user's credentials will be used.

The name of the protected machine.

Optional. Only for chain deletion (base image with chain of incrementals or orphaned points). The sequential number of a recovery point to check (use the Get-RecoveryPoints command to obtain the numbers). You can specify several space-separated numbers to delete multiple recovery points with a single command.

Optional. Select the recovery point to check by its creation time, instead of its sequential number. Specify the exact time in the format "mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt" (for example, "2/24/2012 09:00 AM"). Keep in mind to specify date and time values of the time zone set on your computer.

Example:

Start a checksum check on two recovery points.:

Start-EsxiExport

The Start-EsxiExport PowerShell command initiates the launch of a virtual export from the selected Rapid Recovery recovery point to an ESX(i) server virtual machine.

Required parameters include the name of the protected machine containing recovery points to export; the name of the virtual machine you are exporting to; the amount of RAM to be allocated on the virtual machine; the host name and port of the Linux server host, and the path to the local, network, or Linux folder where the resulting virtual machine files will be stored.
