Edit VMware PowerShell SnapShot Script

I download the following powershell script to email reminders of Vmware snapshots in my enviroment. http://www.virtu-al.net/2009/06/22/powercli-snapreminder/ 

Instead of having a email sent to me for each snapshot, I would like to receive one email that that contains all of the same information that each individual email had..

how can I do this?

Are you wanting emailed on any VMs that contain snapshots? Is that right?

Alan has a different 'tool' called vCheck Daily. You can download it here: http://www.virtu-al.net/featured-scripts/vcheck/. I think this may serve you better. I did a "guest post" on Chris Colotti's site on how to 'separate' out the plugins for only what you want (see: http://www.chriscolotti.us/vmware/segregating-the-vcheck-daily-report-scripts/?utm_source=website&utm_campaign=wordtwit&utm_medium=web). So, basically, what you'll need to do is download the vCheck files. They come in a .zip file. Place them in a directory on your workstation. In the Plugins folder, all you need is the "00" Plugin, the "Disconnect from vCenter" Plugin and either Plugin "02", "45", "63", "64", or "65". You'll answer some questions at the initial run of the script, one of which is adding SMTP/email addy info. You can then set the script to be scheduled to run daily, or weekly, or whenever you like (see Alan's post on how to sched a script here: http://www.virtu-al.net/2009/07/10/running-a-powercli-scheduled-task/).

What you can do is play around with each of the plugins to see what the output is specifically that you want, or just add them all. If you don't need some of them, you can simply remove the ones you don't want from the Plugins folder.

Hope that helps.

Regards.
