SME commands - New-Backup

Hi guys,

** not related to the Toolkit **

I want to run Snapmanager commands from Powershell (New-Backup for example) - to do that I need to use the 'SMEJobLauncher' application:

.\NetApp\Snapmanager for Exchange> SMEJobLauncher New-Backup ....

with SMSQL I can just import/add the Snapin and then run the commands:

>Add-PSSnapin NetApp.SnapManager.SQL.PS.Admin

> New-Backup ...

What would be the equivalent in SME?

Hey Joel,

All SnapManager's have pssnapins and not modules. you would need to add the pssnapin to start using the cmdlets.

Add-PSSnapin NetApp.SnapManager.Exchange.PS.Admin

Also, here are the list of cmdlets in "NetApp.SnapManager.Exchange.PS.Admin"

thanks Vinith

I don't have that (?!)

Re: SME commands - New-Backup

Hello Joel,

Can you upgrade to the latest version of SME, and retry

Add-PSSnapin NetApp.SnapManager.Exchange.PS.Admin 

These snappin are imported when you open  the snapmanager for exchange cmdlets console

In a normal powershell console, you would need to manually import the snapin using add-pssnapin

I've managed to run the New-Backup command from the PS for SME console (not from the native PS console), which is good enough

thank you
