This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug, ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable, OutBuffer, and OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Input and Return Types

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet. The return type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

Notes

  • The WBPolicy object must be in edit mode. To put the WBPolicy object in edit mode for a policy that has been set as the scheduled backup policy, use the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet with the -Editable parameter. The New-WBPolicy cmdlet creates a new WBPolicy object already in edit mode.

  • To use Windows Server Backup cmdlets, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.
