Hi,

I'm trying to find out if there is Wbadmin start sysrecovery's equivalent in Power Shell? This is "specific" command since it "Performs a system recovery (bare metal recovery) "

wbadmin start sysrecovery
-version:<VersionIdentifier>
-backupTarget:{<BackupDestinationVolume> | <NetworkShareHostingBackup>}
[-machine:<BackupMachineName>]
[-restoreAllVolumes]
[-recreateDisks]
[-excludeDisks]
[-skipBadClusterCheck]
[-quiet]

    Hi @InfoTechdude ,

    You'll find the Windows Server Backup PowerShell command line reference over here:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/windowserverbackup/?view=winserver2012r2-ps

    The equivalent PowerShell cmdlet for Wbadmin start sysrecovery would be the Start-WBSystemStateRecovery cmdlet.

    @Leon Laude Thanks man. Are you saying both system state + BMR are in Start-WBSystemStateRecovery? What will be "Start-WBVolumeRecovery" equivalent in wbdamin?

    @Leon Laude Thank you. So to recap:
    both:
    wbadmin start systemstaterecovery (system state)
    wbadmin start sysrecovery (bmr)
    are in Start-WBSystemStateRecovery?
    But wbadmin start recovery= Start-WBVolumeRecovery is for general recovery?
