This KB assumes some basic familiarity with Microsoft Powershell, including cmdlets, variables, and the pipeline.
To launch a session with Veeam Powershell, open Veeam Backup & Replication, go to "Tools", and click "Powershell". This will launch a window as below:
From here, you can obtain a full list of all VBR Cmdlets by using "Get-VBRCommand":
One command that is quite useful is 'Get-VBRJob'. This returns a list of all backup, replication, and copy jobs configured in your VBR install.
You can also be more specific about which job(s) you desire by supplying a -Name parameter, which does accept wildcards.
Now that we know how to get our job data, let's say we wish to start all of our jobs at once (perhaps to do load testing over a weekend). The command is simple:
You can also do the same with the 'stop-vbrjob' cmdlet analogously.
