Start-OBRegistration

Registers the current computer to Windows Azure Backup.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Start-OBRegistration [-RecoveryService] <CBServiceResource> [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Start-OBRegistration cmdlet registers the server to Windows Azure Backup. The cmdlet registers the server by uploading a backup certificate to the vault. You can use the Get-OBCertificateListFromLocalStore cmdlet to get the list of certificates from the local computer certificate store.

This cmdlet supports the WhatIf and the Confirm parameters. The cmdlet prompts the user for confirmation by default. The WhatIf parameter gives a verbose description of what the cmdlet does without performing any operation. The Confirm parameter specifies whether the cmdlet should prompt the user. Specify –Confirm:$FALSE to override the prompt.

To use Windows Azure Backup cmdlets, the user must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.

Examples

Example 1: Registers a server

This example starts a computer registration.


 

The first command gets the list of certificates from the local computer certificate store, and stores the result in the $Cert variable.


PS C:\> $Cert = Get-OBCertificateListFromLocalStore

 

The second command gets the list of backup vaults that can you use to register the current computer for the fifth certificate stored in $Cert. The command stores the result in the $Item variable.


PS C:\> $Item = Get-OBRecoveryService –Certificate $Cert[4]

 

The third command registers the current computer by using the first certificate stored in $Item.


PS C:\> Start-OBRegistration -RecoveryService $Item[0]
