  • 1.  Issue with Connect-VIServer

    Posted Sep 08, 2010 02:47 PM


    I am quite new to this and am trying to use Powershell to access my ESXi server.

    I have ran Connect-ViServer -Server ip-address -Protocol https -User Admin - Password xxxx

    but i keep being told there is an issue with the protocol "Could not connect using requested protocol"

    I have also tried http also to no avail.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    This was actually a proxy setting that was causing this issue. Once proxy removed the error stopped.

    You can also look at Set-PowerCLIConfiguration cmdlet. It allows you to configure PowerCLI to use or not the system proxy.
