I want to write a perl script to scrape the get-backup output to report on basic backup information. (No I don't want to use the GUI for lots of reasons).
How do you interface with the Power Shell from a DOS prompt? If I can run the commands from a DOS prompt I can run the commands with Perl.
What I'm ultimately trying to do is gather information about the backups, send an SNMP trap to our monitoring system if it fails and upload the information to a centralized reporting database.
Thanks in advance.
