retarget storage location witm BEMCLI

Hi Experts,

I have some BE jobs with storage Disk1
But I want to change the storage to Disk2

Can you help me with this script ? I don´t understand.

# Retarget-BackupDefinitionJobs.ps1

param([string]$currentStorage, [string]$newStorage)

Get-BEJob | ?{$_.Storage.Name -like $currentStorage -and $_.IsBackupDefinitionJob} | %{

$job = $_

$bd = $job.BackupDefinition


switch ($job.TaskType) {

"Full" { $bd | Set-BEFullBackupTask $job.TaskName -Storage $newStorage | Save-BEBackupDefinition -Confirm:$false}

Well it looks like the script takes 2 params
1 - Your old disk
2 - Your new disk

I don't think you have to change anything just execute/call this script with the appropriate params

So that would normally mean you would call it like this

Retarget-BackupDefinitionJobs -currentStorage DISK1 -newStorage Disk2
