Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 Update 4 – PowerShell goodies

With all the Cmdlets for the new features in Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 Update 4 and the additional ones for exiting features, the number of Cmdlets of the Veeam PowerShell SnapIn has grown from 564 to 734. Documenting all the new Cmdlets is way too much for a single blog post, so I will highlight a few unusual goodies.

Cmdlets for Top New Features

PowerShell goodies

Scale-Out Repository Email Report

The PowerShell Help and even the Veeam PowerShell Reference do not offer any details regarding this Cmdlet.
The Cmdlet triggeres an Email to all notification recipients in the General Options. But I was not able to find this notification in the Backup Console. If anyone has any further information, please contact me.

Update – 28.01.2018:
The report is sent automatically every day.

Test Backup Repository

The PowerShell Help and even the Veeam PowerShell Reference do not offer any details regarding this Cmdlet. If anyone has any further information, please contact me.

Start Backup Health Check

The PowerShell Help and even the Veeam PowerShell Reference do not offer any details regarding this Cmdlet.
I assume that the same process as for the “Storage-level corruption guard” is triggered. If anyone has any further information, please contact me.
