Invoke-Command with Variables

Veeam Logoby estoeffels » Sat Jan 07, 2012 2:19 am

Ok I'm still a novice but I have a script that will check for new resource pool in vCenter then add new backup job in Veeam

This is just a part of the script that will run INVOKE-COMMAND portion and it is not passing Variables from local to remote session

Just a part of script ((((assume $targetfolder, $crmid, $pool)))) have been correctly supplied locally

$remotesession = New-PSSession -Name VBUserver -ComputerName $VBUserver -credential $cred
invoke-command -computername $VBUserver -credential $cred -Script{
add-pssnapin VeeamPSSnapIn
$vbrserver = Get-VBRServer | Where {$_.Type -eq "Local"}
add-vbrbackupjob $crmid VDDK $vbrserver $targetfolder -objects $pool

Any help would be awesome

invoke-command doesn't have a -script flag from what I know, it only has scriptblock. Try changing it to scriptblock and see if that works. Also, you could do the following:

Code: Select all
invoke-command -Computer BNRBox -ScriptBlock {add-pssnapin VeeamPSSnapIn;$vbrserver = Get-VBRServer | Where {$_.Type -eq "Local"};add-vbrbackupjob $crmid VDDK $vbrserver $targetfolder -objects $pool}

This should work;

Code: Select all
$remoteSession = New-PSSession -Name VBUserver -ComputerName $VBUserver -Credential $cred
Invoke-Command -Session $remoteSession -ScriptBlock {
   add-pssnapin VeeamPSSnapIn
   $vbrserver = Get-VBRServer | Where {$_.Type -eq "Local"}
   add-vbrbackupjob $crmid VDDK $vbrserver $targetfolder -objects $pool
} -ArgumentList "$targetfolderValue", "$crmidValue", "$poolValue"

Is this v5 or v6?
