Scheduling replication Hyper-v
Posted on 2014-01-15
I have two hyperv servers with the following VMs:
I have replication enabled for the Hyperv1 server VMs (Alice and FreePBX2) to replicate to Hyperv3 and for TeaCup to replicate to Hyperv1.
However they are in separate offices connected by a 2mb pipe. If replication happens all the time, which is the default setting, then there is too much bandwidth used and everything else between the offices is too slow.
I don;t need a sync every 5 minutes and would like to schedule the replication to happen between 8pm and 7am every night and 24 hours a day on Sundays.
I looked around and found the following link to do this in powershell, but i have never used powershell and so I am really concerned about messing something up. Is there a better way to do this? Or otherwise a step by step on powershell? Maybe a scheduled task that can be created?
Appreciate your help.
