Using PowerShell to list Zerto Unprotected Systems

This script will connect to the Zerto server and retrieve a list of systems that Zerto is not backing up. The script has been written so that it can function in the Azure Automation or Orchestrator environment. It can also be used as a scheduled task or executed manually. It excludes desktop operating systems.

You will need to install both the activedirectory and zertoapiwrapper modules before using this script.

You can download the script from my GitHub site.

           Unprotected Systems Report  
           This script will retrieve a list of systems from the Zerto server that are not being backed up. Desktop operating systems and systems not in AD are excluded, as Zerto is typically used for server backup.
