VBR v10 Powershell What’s New

This post was originally published on this site

So one of the things that I always find interesting with each new Veeam Backup & Replication release is the additions to the PowerShell cmdlets list. PowerShell was first introduced to the VBR universe with version 7 and with each release we have got more and more commands to play with. It still hurts me to this day that they haven’t converted their Snap-In to a module yet but to quote my daughter’s teacher, you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.

In the spirt of this curiosity I decided to do a little differential fun with 9.5 update 4 and the soon to be GA version 10 Snap-Ins. I’m not going to bore you with all the commands and stuff that led us to here but if you want to reproduce any of this consider my work shown:

asnp VeeamPSSnapin #On 9.5u4 Server Get-Command | where {$_.Source -eq “VeeamPSSnapin”} | select Name | Export-Csv -Path “desktop95commands.csv” #On 10 Server Get-Command | where {$_.Source -eq “VeeamPSSnapin”} | select Name | export-csv -Path .Desktop10commands.csv” #load the 2 csv
