i have an VMWare Environment with 2 x ESXi Host in a HA-Cluster. This Environment is connected to a HP 3000 UPS with a HP UPS MGMT Module. I have installed a W2012R2 VM running on this Cluster and installed HP Power Protector ver. 1.04 on this VM.
Now i wrote a powershell script for shutting down the VMWare vSphere HA-Cluster and this script (c:\temp\ups.ps1) is running fine if i run it locally on my W2012R2 VM.
Now i set the HPPP to run a script and set it up for the path "powershell c:\temp\ups.ps1". But it does not work when i use the "Test Shutdown" Button - as mentioned before the script is running fine when i start it manually.
I wrote a test script with the only information to restart the vm:
shutdown -r -t 00
saved this one to c:\temp\ups1.ps1.
Now i inserted this one in HPPP as script path "powershell c:\temp\ups1.ps1". Pressing the "Test Shutdown" button now works and restarts the VM directly.
Why it does not work with the other script in HPPP ? Im loading the VMWare Snapin at the beginning of my script to use PowerCLI commands..
Is there anything i missed ?
powershell c:\temp\ups.ps1 change this to
