How do you add a volume to a dataset by name?

I'm trying to use a script to add of lots of volumes to a dataset within OnCommand.  From the GUI I would find the volume from the "Unprotected" window and add it to an existing dataset.  However, since there are so many I am hoping to somewhat automate it by just invoking a bunch of "DFPM dataset add" commands.  Unfortunately, I am running into a problem in that DFPM can't seem to find a volume by its name, only its ID:

 

C:\Users\ckeith>dfpm dataset add DS01-Kraft-LocalCopies TestAdd

Error: Could not add TestAdd to dataset DS01-Kraft-LocalCopies (2384). Reason: There is no volume, qtree, directory, host, aggregate or virtualization object named 'TestAdd'.

 

C:\Users\ckeith>dfm search volume TestAdd

Volumes - 2 matches

3039 TestAdd          ENAS-1-A                0.0

3040 TestAdd.snapshot ENAS-1-A                0.0

Qtrees - 1 matches

3041 -          ENAS-1-A       TestAdd

Events - 1 matches

Effect: Change following options on volume VF01-Kraft-Dallas_Lab:/TestAdd(3039): [ nosnap to on ].

 

Do: Enable deduplication on flexible volume.

Effect: Enable deduplication on flexible volume 'VF01-Kraft-Dallas_Lab:/TestAdd' (3039)

 

Do: Setting deduplication schedule 'auto' on flexible volume.

Effect: Setting deduplication schedule 'auto' on flexible volume 'VF01-Kraft-Dallas_Lab:/TestAdd' (3039)

 

Added volume VF01-Kraft-Dallas_Lab:/TestAdd (3039) to dataset DS01-Kraft-LocalCopies (2384).

 

 

Any ideas why DFPM doesn't recognize the volume by its name?  I'm using DFM version 5.0.2 on a Windows 2008 server.

 

Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Keith
