    Track Status of move-vm Task fails

    feixfb Novice

      Hey,

       

      i am working on a script which check the status of the datastore befor a snapshot of a vm is taken. If the free space on the ds in not enough it will move the vm to a other ds which will meet the needed free space.

       

      The script works well so far. But sometimes the move process take a time and i want to get some Info about the state of completion of the task...I tryed this..

       

      <code snip>

      if ($targetDS) {

                  write-host "Die VM" $vm "wird nun von" $aktivDS.Name "nach" $targetDS.Name "verschoben" -ForegroundColor DarkGreen

                  $moveVMJob = Move-VM -VM $vm -Datastore $targetDS.Name -RunAsync -Confirm:$false

                 

                  while ('Success', 'Error' -notcontains $moveVMJob.State) {

                      $moveVMJob

                      Write-Output $moveVMJob.PercentComplete

                      sleep 5

                 }    

      </code snip>

       

      <output snip>

      Die VM snaptest2 wird nun von testserver_02-000C2 nach testserver_03-00088 verschoben

       

       

      Name            State   % Complete Start Time Finish Time

      ----            -----   ---------- ---------- -----------
