Hi everybody,

when scripting 3PAR-stuff, we so far simply call cli.exe with appropriate switches.

I was wondering: Does anybody use wsapi for day to day scripting, and could perhaps share a basic script showing the usage?

The HPE 3PAR Web Services API 1.5 Developer’s Guide contains stuff like "Because 3PAR CLI scripts need to process CLI-generated text, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends using WSAPI to automate tasks.", but provides just Java and Perl-examples.

I tried the same, but failed when translating curl - parameters to the appropriate Invoke-Webrequest - parameters...

I keep getting an "The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS", because I don't know what -k is in powershell :x

I'm new around here, so maybe this is silly.

Buy y'all know about this?

I know it's around, but we use powershell. Our management environment is windows only, and ps is "just there".
