Need a script to change the password of admin for all the VMs (windows)

Hi LucD,

Need your help about changing the password to root for Linux VM.

It throws the following error when I run on Linux VM

Invoke VMScript: 10/04/2013-16:52:02 Invoke VMScript Could not authenticate with the guest operating system by using the supplied credentials.

Thank you

  • Need a script to change the ip address of multiple virtual computers

    Hi all

    I have a task to change the ip addresses of multiple ip addresses from DHCP to Static server windows operating systems. I have a powershell script I tried to archieve it work with. However, once the ip address is changed the tcp connection is reset. At this point, the script errors on.

    Now that I'm stuck with powershell, I turned to powercli. I want to address with the string below, but as assistance to refine.

    Get-VMHost $VMHost | Get - vm $VM.name | Get-VMGuestNetworkInterface | WHERE-object {$_.name - eq 'Connect to the Local network'} | Game VMGuestNetworkInterface - static IPPolicy - gateway $VM. Gateway - Netmask $VM.Netmask Ip - $VM.ipaddr - Verbose

    I read all the entries to a CSV file.

    You will appreciate your help.

    See you soon,.

    Bpcue

    Of course, you could do something like that

    foreach($row in (Import-Csv "C:\input.csv" -UseCulture)){
        Get-VMHost $row.Hostname | Get-VM $row.VMname |
        Get-VMGuestNetworkInterface |
        where-object {$_.Name -eq "Local Area Connection"} |
        Set-VMGuestNetworkInterface  -IPPolicy static -Gateway $row.Gateway -Netmask $row.Netmask -Ip $row.ipaddr
    }
    

    This assumes that your CSV file has the following columns

    Host name, VMname, ipaddr, netmask, gateway

    BTW, the cmdlet Set-VMGuestNetworkInterface uses Invoke-VMScript to launch one of the scripts that you find in the folder the PowerCLI installation directory Scripts .

    If you take a look inside one of these BAT files, you will see that it is also using the netsh command

  • Script to change the settings for security vSwith

    We need a script to change the settings for security vSwitch.

    To change the below: -.

    Mac changes Accept Reject

    Forged pass Accept Reject

    The two parameters above must change on all the vSwitch in vcenter.

    Altogether. Pass an argument to Get-VMHost

    If you pass the complete hostname (as he shows in vCenter), it will act on the single host:

    Get-VMHost MYESXi01.mydomain.com

    or if you want to do more, you can pass a joker:

    Get-VMHost MYESXi*.mydomain .com

    FWIW, I think that should do the same thing on a single line, if you like this better

    Get-VMhost|%{$hv=Get-View $_.ID;$ns=$hv.ConfigManager.NetworkSystem;($hv.Config.Network.Vswitch)|%{$vs=$_.Spec;$vs.Policy.Security.AllowPromiscuous=$false;$vs.Policy.Security.ForgedTransmits=$false; $vs.Policy.Security.MacChanges=$false;$ns.UpdateVirtualSwitch($_.Name,$vs)}}

  • script to change the data type of column

    Hi gurus of the oracle.

    I have 190 tables in my database.

    I have the column type CHAR of all these tables data.

    I need to change the data type of CHAR in VARCHAR2 for all these tables...

    There the script to change the data type of all tables at once?

    Please help me in this regard.

    Thanks in advance

    Concerning

    REDA

    Hello

    There is nothing built-in to Oracle SQL to do.  Maybe your front-end has certain characteristics.

    You can write dynamic SQL statements to do.  In other words, you can write a query that the output is a SQL script like this:

    ALTER TABLE TABLE_A CHANGE (A_TXT1 VARCHAR2 (5))

    A_TXT2 VARCHAR2 (10));

    ALTER TABLE TABLE_B CHANGE (B_TXT1 VARCHAR2 (5));

    with one row for each column of type CHAR.  Notice how the first line of output for each table begins with ALTER TABLE... but the later lines at the same table.  Similarly, the last line of a table (which will be the same as the first row, if the table has only one column of type CHAR) to end with a semicolon, but other lines are not.

    Here's a way to generate and execute such a dynamic script in SQL * more:

    -Disable the features that make the output easy to read, but hinder the execution
    SET FEEDBACK OFF
    SET LINESIZE 500
    SET PAGESIZE 0

    -Create fix_char.sql
    COIL c:\some_pathename\fix_char.sql

    SELECT THE CHECK BOX
    WHEN ROW_NUMBER () OVER (PARTITION BY table_name
    ORDER BY column_name
    )  = 1
    THEN 'ALTER TABLE ' | table-name
    || "CHANGE (").
    ELSE «»
    END
    ||        column_name
    ||        "VARCHAR2 (').
    ||        DATA_LENGTH
    ||        ')'
    ||        CASE
    WHEN ROW_NUMBER () OVER (PARTITION BY table_name
    ORDER BY column_name DESC
    )  = 1
    THEN '); "
    Output END AS
    Of user_tab_columns
    WHERE data_type = "CHAR".
    ORDER BY table_name
    column_name
    ;

    SPOOL OFF

    -Turn on the features that make the output easy to read, but hinder the execution
    SET FEEDBACK ON
    SET LINESIZE 80
    SET PAGESIZE 50

    -Fix_char.sql performance
    @c:\some_pathname\fix_char

    It's good to change all the CHARIOT of VARCHAR2 columns.  The CHAR data type is nothing trouble.

    Hello

    Thank you

    Astra

    I guess it worked because you pasted an out front, so:

    Get-Cluster mycluster. Get-VMHost | Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter | where {$_.} PortGroupName - eq "VMotion"} | {} %
    Game-VMHostNetworkAdapter - VirtualNic $_ - IP $_. IP - subnet mask "255.255.254.0" - confirm: $false
    }

    I guess that makes still out:

    Get-Cluster mycluster. Get-VMHost | Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter | where {$_.} PortGroupName - eq "VMotion"}

    2 vmknis right?

    If Yes, then it should work I think.

  • Script to change the name of the file to the virtual machine and its associated files

    Hello

    I'm looking for a script to change the name of the virtual machine in virtual center and also change it has associated file names in the data store to match file name of virtual machine. But the vmdk file will contain a descriptor which maps the - flat.vmdk file. So not sure that we can achieve this through a script.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not really as much as I know.

    The advantage of the svMotion is renamed it the files (.) VMX, VMDK,...) For you.

    The only alternative would be the command line. See Duncan Howto: renaming a virtual computer.

    With the help of the plink.exe tool which could possibly be scripted.
