Imports initial replication files for a Replica virtual machine to complete the initial replication when using external media as the source.

Syntax

Parameter Set: VMName
Import-VMInitialReplication [-VMName] <String[]> [-Path] <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String[]> ] [-Credential <System.Management.Automation.PSCredential[]> ] [-Passthru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: VMObject
Import-VMInitialReplication [-VM] <VirtualMachine[]> [-Path] <String> [-AsJob] [-Passthru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: VMReplication
Import-VMInitialReplication [-VMReplication] <VMReplication[]> [-Path] <String> [-AsJob] [-Passthru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Import-VMInitialReplication cmdlet imports initial replication files on a Replica server. It completes the initial replication of a virtual machine when external is used as the source of the files for initial replication.

Examples

Example 1

This example imports the initial replication files for a virtual machine named VM01 from location d:\VMImportLocation\VM01.


PS C:\> Import-VMInitialReplication VM01 d:\VMImportLocation\VM01

Example 2

This example imports the initial replication files for a set of virtual machines using files located in D:\OOBLoc\


PS C:\> Get-VMReplication | ForEach-Object {$path = "D:\OOBLoc\" + $_.VMName + "_" + $_.VMID; if (Test-Path $path –PathType Container) {Import-VMInitialReplication $_ $path}}
