  • 1.  invoke-vmscript how does it works

    Posted Apr 06, 2009 10:09 AM

    Hello

    I tested the invoke-vmscript and found the tool very interesting but can some one tell me how does it work ?

    is this command using the network path so depending on gpo firewall and all other restrictions ?

    or does this command goes throw vcenter fonctionalities and only needs an admin account for the guest to work as if we was connected with a TS console

    hope my question is clear

    and if you know publications on this fonctionality feel free to share :smileyhappy:

    The Invoke-VmScript cmdlet uses the VC to VMware Tools communication to run the script on the guest.

    There is good info on the Invoke-VmScript in this thread .

    Carter made a great video when VITK v1.5 was released.

    And the VMworld Europe 2009 labs contain an Invoke-VMScript example.

    Does this answer your questions ?
