• PVS V2 Documentation Script Has Been Updated 22-APR-2013

    April 22, 2013

    PowerShell, PVS

    While at a customer site recently that had a fairly large PVS 6.1 implementation, I was dissatisfied with the Table of Contents for the Word document.  I thought some of the Section Headings needed to be changed so the Table of Contents “looked” better.  I also thought there should be more detail, especially for the Servers, vDisks and Device Collections.  I also found a way around the incompatibilities between Set-StrictMode –Version 2 and the way I was saving the Word file.

    Since I wrote the article on how to use remoting with the PVS script, I decided to go ahead and add the capability to configure remoting to the script.  The necessitated the need for an additional parameter AdminAddress.  AdminAddress is the name of the PVS server to remote the script against.

    If you fat-finger the PVS server name for the AdminAddress parameter, the PVS PowerShell cmdlet that configures remoting will throw up a whole heaping helping of garbage on your screen before I can catch the error and end the script.

    To use the new AdminAddress parameter:

    .\PVS_Inventory_V2.ps1 -CompanyName "Citrix Customer" -CoverPage Cubicles -UserName "Carl Webster" -AdminAddress PVS1 -verbose

    The changes I made to the V2 PVS script are very minor.  I changed the internal version number to 2.01 but left the filename unchanged.
