DESCRIPTION

Note: This cmdlet is deprecated and might be removed in a future release. We recommend that you do not use this cmdlet.

The Mount-IscsiVirtualDiskSnapshot cmdlet mounts a snapshot locally. This cmdlet operates on snapshots in the virtual disk 1.0 (VHD) format only.

Mounting a snapshot locally exposes the snapshot as a disk to the local computer. Use diskmgmt.msc or cmdlets to bring the disk online.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Mount a snapshot by using an ID

PS C:\> Mount-IscsiVirtualDiskSnapshot -SnapshotId "{E9A5BA03-85B9-40CA-85DF-DC1695690B40}"

This example mounts the snapshot that has the ID {E9A5BA03-85B9-40CA-85DF-DC1695690B40} on the local server, which can be accessed by the backup server to perform backup.

Example 2: Mount a snapshot by using a name

PS C:\> Mount-IscsiVirtualDiskSnapshot -InputObject $VhdSnapshot

This example mounts the Snapshot object stored in a variable named $VhdSnapshot on the local server, which can be accessed by the backup server to perform backup.
