vCO 101 - Test DPM

less than 1 minute read

In response to Cody Bunch’s recent post on Testing DPM with PowerCLI, I decided to translate this into a vCO workflow.  I did this because I thought it would be fun.  The workflow is relatively simple and does the following:

  • Allows user to select the host.
  • Checks the current power state of the host.
  • Based on the above, runs through either the standby tasks or the power on tasks.
  • Logs if successful and fails with exception if not.

Instead of making this a lengthy post, I have attached the workflow for you to download if you want to see it or play with it.  Enjoy!
