The backup information includes the staging location at which to create the initial backup copy, the name of the import job that notifies the Import/Export service that you are shipping hard drives to a data center, the Azure management certificate thumbprint, and the Azure Subscription ID, Storage account, and Storage container that the import job uses.


PS C:\> Get-OBInitialBackupCreationMethod -Policy $Policy01

IBMethod                      : OfflineBackup
StagingLocationPath           : D:\SalesData
AzureImportJobName            : BackupJob01
AzureManagementCertThumbprint : 0A1F4F43DC5E3780C60E27B8FF516902F1692B43
AzureSubscriptionId           : a53949b2-82fd-4d4d-853a-509b6e6e07ca
AzureStorageAccountName       : BackupFinanceAccount
