Backup Site

Creates a backup of the designated SharePoint site.

If you receive the following error when using this object to create an Automation Manager Policy to backup a SharePoint site, you will need to uninstall PowerShell version 3.0:
The local farm is not accessible. Cmdlets with FeatureDependencyId are not registered.

Search for Microsoft KB2506143" or "Windows Management Framework 4.0" to uninstall PowerShell 3.0 and revert back to PowerShell 2.0.

Automation Manager Policies that use SharePoint objects may require using PowerShell Remoting. As a result of this, if the remote computer is in a Workgroup but not connected to a Domain, the Policy will only function properly if it is run by the Administrator account of the remote computer. Attempting to run such a Policy using an account with administrative privileges but that is not the Administrator account will cause the Policy to fail.
