Purpose

The export_job_metadata command exports metadata of a job (job definition, save sets, and targets) based on the requested backup version. In the case of a disaster to the DSC repository, exporting and then importing job metadata enables job migration and restoration to a different DSA environment.

The data must be exported in the following order:
  1. Targets
  2. Job definition
  3. Save sets

Syntax

export_job_metadata -n|-name Name -d|-directory DirectoryPath -v|-backup_version BackupVersion -t|-type Type -u|-user_authentication User

Example

dsc export_job_metadata -n job1 -v latest

Parameters

The name of the job on which to perform the action. Must be unique for each job.

[Optional] The type of job metadata. You may enter JOB (for the job definition), SAVESET, or TARGET. If no value is specified, all three types of metadata are included.

Required when security management is enabled. Supplies the command with the Viewpoint user, and triggers a password prompt for authentication.
