Data Backup and Recovery Discussions
1. In snapdrive i can use the command "sdcli snap create" and "sdcli snapshot rename" is there a similar options with snapcenter?
2. Snapcenter - is this powershell only?
3. If i want to run snapcenter powershell do i always have to open a connection to the snapcenter server?
See The Solution
Get-module SnapDrive should give you the list of PS cmds you can use. Run it on the host where you have installed SCW plugin service.
SnapCenter supports three interface - UI, PowerShell and REST APIs. For PS cmdlet, you need to connect to SC server via open-smconnection cmdlet.
From what i see so far, PS is what snapcenter use....
Look for the following PS command
Look for SnapCenter 4.4 ,Cmdlet Reference Guide For Windows
Don't suppose you know if using new-sdsnapshot to take a manual snapshot - does this snapshot appear in snapcenter?
No, Resources protected by SnapCenter and backups taken by it will only be available for management in GUI.
SnapCenter backups should be taken via SnapCenter PS cmdlets. Ex: New-smBackup.
