EMC VNXe – Gen1&2 Backup Script (Powershell & UEMCLI)

——————————————————————-
Reference:: EMC® VNXe® Unisphere® Command Line Interface User Guide:

Collect -Config: Create a snapshot of the current system configuration and save it to a file. It captures all of the data necessary to recreate the current configuration on a new or reinitialized system. It does not capture log files or other types of diagnostic data.

Collect -serviceInfo: Collect information about the system and save it to a .tar file. Service providers can use the collected information to analyze the system.
——————————————————————-

Using native UEMCLI commands integrated with Powershell this script automates the process of backing up the current VNXe configuration along with the latest system log files. You will just need to Complete a few simple user entries:
◊ Backup Directory
◊ Mgmt IP Address
◊ Service Password

The script will automatically create a sub-directory in the backup location provided. For example if you input a backup directory of C:\VNXe this will result in a backup location of C:\VNXe\timeDate

Example Script Execution
VNXe_Backup1

The backup directory location will automatically open on completion of the script:
VNXe_Backup2
