Adds the system state components to the backup policy.
The Add-WBSystemState cmdlet adds the system state components to a policy contained in the specified WBPolicy object. Use backups created through this policy to perform a system state recovery.
The WBPolicy object must be in edit mode. To put the WBPolicy object in edit mode for a policy that is set as the scheduled backup policy, use the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet with the Editable parameter. The New-WBPolicy cmdlet creates a new WBPolicy object that is already in edit mode.
To use this or any other Windows Server 2012 Backup cmdlets, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.
Example 1: Add system state to the backup policy
PS C:\>$Policy = Get-WBPolicy PS C:\> Add-WBSystemState -Policy $Policy
This example adds a setting to the WBPolicy object to include the system state in backups that you create by using this policy.
The first command stores the result of the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet in the variable named $Policy.
The second command adds the system state to the backup policy in the $Policy variable.
Specifies a WBPolicy object that contains the backup policy to update.
