You need to save the changes like so

Get-BEBackupDefinition -Name "Name" | Set-BEIncrementalBackupTask | Save-BEBackupDefinition

You would need to have the appropriate switches for each of the cmdlets.

Hi Pkh,

thank you for your reply.  I understand i need to pipe to Save-BE... but my question is which is the correct cmdlet and parameter to use to change the retenion period for an incremental job?

Have you tried the DiskStorageKeepForHours parameter for the Set cmdlet?

If you are using tape or disk cartridges, then you only need to modify the OPP in the media set.
