1)Is anyone successfully using Powershell invoke-restmethod to successfully interact with EM? My personal issue is that I can login fine with the initial POST, but I do not know how to grab the X-RestSvcSessionId value in the response. This is possibly a knowledge gap on my part - my workaround is to use Wireshark to view the attribute and then I paste it in subsequent commands. Which works OK but I need to know how to capture it in my scripts/workflows. Powershell is not a firm requirement but it is preferred.
2)The edition comparison states Ent+ only for REST support. Does anyone know if this support is hard and fast in the code? i.e. if you try to interact with Veeam Std edition will you get access denied, or is this just a soft support statement (don't log a call and expect support, but it works)?
The reason for 2 is that I get access denied on an existing Std edition (case 00567629 for any Veeam people lurking) but when I try the same on a brand new Ent+ trial I do not get access denied. I don't know at this stage if the error is related to the license or the installation. Any information welcome.
