PS script error - DPM2010 SAN based recovery with EMC VNX RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi team, I found there is a post regarding the

    integration between DPM and EMC SAN storage, but it's

    for DPM 2007 . And my test to run this script got

    errors when I ran it on my DPM 2012 management shell.

    I am wondering if anyone can provide a version for

    DPM 2012,or any document that I can refer to for

    manual configuration with DPM2012 GUI to acheive the

    SAN based recovery.
