Detailed Description

The Set-OBMachineSetting cmdlet sets a OBMachineSetting object for the server that includes proxy server settings for accessing the internet, network bandwidth throttling settings, and the encryption passphrase that is required to decrypt the files during recovery to another server.

This cmdlet supports WhatIf and Confirm parameters with a medium impact. The medium impact signifies that the cmdlet will not prompt 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. Using –Confirm:$FALSE will override the prompt.

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