How to run a script from a vCenter Alarm action in the VCSA? — virtuallyGhetto
As more and more customers transition from the vCenter Server for Windows to the vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA), a question that I get from time to time is how do I run a script using a vCenter Alarm from the VCSA? Traditionally, customers would create and run Windows specific scripts such as a simple batch script or a more powerful Powershell/PowerCLI script. However, since the VCSA is a Linux based operating system, these Windows specific scripts would no longer function, at least out of the box.
