Backup Exec 2012 and PowerShell–It all starts with one little command

Symantec has introduced PowerShell in Backup Exec 2012, and all it takes is one little command;

Import-Module –Name BEMCLI

Just run that command and you will be able to access all the Backup Exec PowerShell goodness!

The BEMCLI module allows you to access 203 Cmdlets with a few alias and functions thrown in too.

Symantec has also released a chm file to download with all the PowerShell commands for Backup Exec in it. You can download it from the link below:

I’m looking forward to playing with PowerShell in Backup Exec 2012 and seeing how it can be utilized within my workplace.
