    Question: Need assistance with RDK construct using import module webadministration

     

    I have a powershell script that runs successfully as a standalone script. I am trying to use RDK to create an action and getting errors. I suspect that the import module is failing based on the error that I receive.

    Note also that the reason I require using webadministration module is because I want to continue to build actions – one of which is to retrieve the app pool name from the site name… so that we can recycle the app pool.

     

    Here is my script:

     

    $sitename = ${SiteName}

    #$sitename = "authenticationservice"

     

    import-module webadministration

    set-location "iis:\sites"

     

       try

        {

     

     

    start-webitem $siteName 

        }

       catch

        

        {

       #$global:test = $_

       Write-Warning ($_.exception.message)

       

        }

     

     

     

     

    After importing into RA and running…

    Below is the message. Note that iis:\sites is only exposed from the webadministration module… which is why I am thinking that is where the issue lies…that the module import is not successful

     

     

    Inputs:

    SiteName

    authenticationservice

    Outputs:

    Execution Output

    null

    Error Output

    authenticationservice : The term 'authenticationservice' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

    Exit Code

    0

    Return Code

    0

     

     

    For comparison, on my test server if I attempt to run this without the import module: here are my results:

     

    start-webitem : Command start is not applicable to the item on path IIS:\.

    At C:\Users\lewister\Documents\scripts\test_start_site wo module 16sep.ps1:13 char:1

    didn't work with the RDK yet, so I can't help there. I'm more interested to know, why you're using a powershell script to start a website instead of maybe a command line call to appcmd.

     

    but yeah, I'm getting the other thing, that you require it maybe for other actions

    When I tried to use a cmdlet into a script I got an error very similar did you got.

    I solved loadin requested module first. Tha's why I did as bellow:

     

    Add-PSSnapIn Citrix.XenApp.Commands (<--Module needed) ; Set-XAApplication...... (Cmdlet did I used).

    We believe this problem is related to a possible defect in the Java wrapper of the RDK involving setting the input parameter as the value of a Powershell variable. This is being reviewed by Engineering.
