Issue retrieving REST API vpgSettings object

  • Hello,

    I’m hoping someone can help me figure out what I’m doing wrong.  No matter what I try, I cannot seem to retrieve/create a vpgSettings object.  Below are some examples of what I’m trying and failing.  I’ve purposely left out all of the connection information due to that all works.  I can successfully access VMs, VPGs, localsite, peersite, etc.

    First, if I enter the following in a browser:

    https://zvm_ip:9669/v1/vpgsettings/help (with the appropriate IP, of course)

    I get the following:

    Endpoint not found. Please see the service help page for constructing valid requests to the service.

    I’ve also tried various “JSON bodies” but receive the error listed below:

    URL for all samples:

    $vpgsettingsUrl = “https://” + $ZertoServer + “:”+$ZertoPort+”/v1/vpgsettings”

    “body” samples:

    $JSON =
    “{}”

    $JSON =
    “{
    “”VpgIdentifier””:””$VPGidentifier””
    }”

    $JSON =
    “{
    “”VpgIdentifier””:””9db80554-85c7-4cfb-ae0c-5ecf591776a6″”
    }”

    Invoke method for all samples:

    $VPGSettingsIdentifier = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Uri $vpgsettingsUrl -Body $JSON -ContentType “application/json” -Headers $zertosessionHeader

    Powershell error:

    Invoke-RestMethod : Service
    Endpoint not found. Please see the service help page for constructing valid requests to the service.
    At line:1 char:26

    + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (System.Net.HttpWebRequest:HttpWebRequest) [Invoke-RestMethod], WebException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebCmdletWebResponseException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeRestMethodCommand

     

    Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Hey Bob,

    I use:

    $baseURL = “https://” + $ZertoServer + “:”+$ZertoPort+”/v1/”
    $contentType = “application/json”
    $CreateVPGURL = $BaseURL+”vpgSettings”
    $JSON =
    “{
    “”VpgIdentifier””:””$VPGidentifier””
    }”
    Try
    {
    $VPGSettingsIdentifier = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Uri $CreateVPGURL -Body $JSON -ContentType $ContentType -Headers $zertosessionHeader
    write-host “VPGSettingsIdentifier: $VPGSettingsIdentifier”
    $ValidVPGSettingsIdentifier = $true
    }
    Catch {
    Write-Host $_.Exception.ToString()
    $error[0] | Format-List -Force
    $ValidVPGSettingsIdentifier = $false
    }

    This works for me without problem, but doesn’t seem to be working for you. Can I ask what version of ZVR you are running? It needs to be a 4.5 build as a minimum for this API call to function. Thanks,

    Joshua

    Hi Joshua,

    Thanks very much for your response.  Your last line, I believe, is my issue.  My ZVR is currently only at v4.0 Update 2. This would explain my issue, and give me a reason to add upgrading my ZVR to my list.

    Thanks again,

    – Bob
