Hi guys,

How can i modify all filenames change date instead GUID.
How to pass as parameter
     - sitecollectionurl
     - backupdestination
and don't read this parameters from the XML.

Script:
 
#Get XML configuration file parameter
param (

Also,
I think the number of parameters are a bit large , why do want to run from the command line rather than using the xml parameter/config file ?

Because i think automatize the process with a Vbscript call to this script and pass 3 parameters XMLFile SiteCollectionToBackup and BackupDestination.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Ready, i solve the problem changing this:

   $guid = "-" + [Guid]::NewGuid().ToString()

By this:

   $guid = "-" + (get-date).day + "-" + (get-date).Month + "-" + (get-date).Year

I am sorry about the delay , I had no access to work question.

That change will do the time date trick.

Are you still interested to get the variables from the command line or still use xml config file ?

George no problem, thank you. I'm using variable I has been changed the script to take these variables as parameters.
Also I changed the code to change the name of the file with date.

Thanks in advance
