PowerShell and Windows Server Backup on Server 2008

view story

http://serverfault.com – I recently put together a PowerShell Script on a server running Windows Server 2008 R2 that created a dated directory then started Windows Server Backup to make a system state backup. The script is run on a nightly basis and works great. Wanting to use this on another server, I copied the script over and, after adding the WSB snapin from the powershell command line, only to find that it would not run. The difference between the two servers is that this new server runs Server 2008 (not R2). Has anyone gotten powershell scripting to work for running backups on Windows Server 2008 with Windows (HowTos)
