Nov 15, 2022

The default root password is VM3dsc1! does not work. Also any password that i setup does not work. Any suggestions?

Login to the VMDSC appliance from the vCenter console. From there, you can type in VM3dsc1!, It will prompt you to change the password.

Does anyone have this automated? If so, please let me how you are doing this?

Thanks

There are a few options. I wrote a PowerShell module (PowerVMDSC) that you can install from the PowerShell Gallery. There are instructions in the fling documentation. Once you have PowerVMDSC up and running you can write a for each loop in a one line powershell script that processes a list of VMs in a csv file. This is how I've been automating testing in the lab.

There is also a bit of vRealize Orchestrator code downloadable from the flings website, it was written to pull configs out of vROPs and push them to VMDSC, but you could modify it however you want.

I may write an Ansible module, I've never written one from scratch but I need to for another project. I may write one for VMDSC as my training wheels since I know exactly what I need each module to do from an API perspective from writing the powershell module.

Thanks Heath. I will look into the for each loop

Has anyone run into this error in Postman when running GetVMID?

TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'vm')

It loos like the URL is being parsed correctly - the Parameters are instantiating as expected...
