PowerShell for 3PAR and/or SSMC

Hi there,

Tried the PowerShell Toolkit 2.1 but it failed on all sides. Anyone know any alternatives? Is there a 3PAR SSMC Powershell toolkit anywhere?

The output of several commands simply fail to present itself correctly and is unusable, some commands give output in objects, others in strings. Anyone know who to contact at HPE for this?

TIA,
Martien

SSMC is an interface to the 3PAR, so no, there is no SSMC Powershell toolkit. It all goes back to the 3PAR.

For support, please follow the standard support processes for your HPE Storage Systems or visit https://www.hpe.com/us/en/support.html.

Re: PowerShell for 3PAR and/or SSMC

Hi,

I understand that SSMC is an interface to the 3PAR, but isn't OneView an interface to Synergy and BladeSystems? There is a Posh-HPOneView Powershell library (by HPE) which works really well.

That's why I was wondering if there's a (working) powershell interface for 3PAR and/or SSMC.

BTW: Can I get support for the 3PAR Powershell Toolkit?

That interface would be the HPE 3PAR Remote CLI client.  :-)

Edit: Ah right.  There is WSAPI.

I've been busy a few days ago using the RESTful API to the 3PAR. Using it with Powershell is fairly easy using 'Invoke-RestMethod'.

Using this blog for starters: http://cloud.kemta.net/microsoft/powershell/powershell-and-the-hpe-3par-rest-api/
