      Hi, have just loaded the zvm powershell cmdlets and running get-zvmvpg cmdlet but it does not return any values for status nor substatus, wondering if am missing something. These statuses are delivered via the get-zertovpg cmdlets from Christopher Lewis. Thanks in anticipation

    • Post Recovery Scripts no longer run in 9.5u3

      Several of our VPGs have scripts that run after the systems in them have been powered on in the recovery site.  These scripts do various things such as connect to Vcenter to automate reboots, connect to the Windows instance to run WMI calls to check services, etc.  For auditing and troubleshooting purposes, I have enabled […]

    • Is this the correct process to change VPG via API

      The following code completes without error, but it doesn’t do anything either. Is this even the correct process to change the journal history in an existing VPG? write-host “#1. Get Identifier to use in VPG settings object” $JSONIdentifier=”{““VpgIdentifier””:””103f201a-35f3-4d3e-a5e5-a6010efabfbf””}” $VPGSettingsIdentifierUrl = $BaseURL+”vpgsettings” $VPGSettingsIdentifier = Invoke-RestMethod -Method POST -Uri $VPGSettingsIdentifierUrl -Body $JSONIdentifier -Headers $ZertoSessionHeader -ContentType $Type write-host […]

    • Updating VPG Description via the API

      I know there is a way to “get” the VPG description via the APIs, but is there a way to modify the VPG description?  Add a description when the VPG is created? Thanks Bill

    • Powershell ZertoModule

      Hi everyone – I’ve created a wrapper for the REST API that converts most of the calls to pretty standard Powershell commands.  Its pretty simple to use and so far I’ve covered the majority of the API, although some of the VGPSettings are not finished. https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/ZertoModule Example usage:   <pre class=”EnlighterJSRAW” data-enlighter-language=”csharp”>PS C:\Scripts> Set-Item ENV:ZertoServer […]

    • Rest API and C# – Authentication

      Hello, I’m hoping to utilize an existing c# application to read some alert info from our on-prem Zerto installation.  I see that you can pass authentication info using PowerShell, but I don’t see how to using the Rest API.  Typically for Rest I’d use RestSharp.dll and Newtonsoft.Json.dll. The returns are null which indicates to me […]

Colleges asked me if Zerto has some option that would enable us to change resources on replicated machines when testing or doing failover.
