    Invoke-VMScript -  An error occurred while sending the request

    gmslsupport Novice


      I am writing a script that use invoke-vmscript and Copy-VMGuestFile but they throw an error when I run them again the vcenter server.


      Here one example:


      Invoke-VMScript -ScriptText $NetworkSettings -VM $VMName -GuestCredential $credential


      Invoke-VMScript : 01/04/2019 10:56:52   Invoke-VMScript         An error occurred while sending the request.

      At C:\Users\user\Documents\vscodeProjects\SupportTeam\Vmware-Automation\Actions\CONFIGNET\ActionCONFIGNET.psm1:43 char:5

      +     Invoke-VMScript -ScriptText $NetworkSettings -VM $VMName -GuestCr ...

      +     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

          + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Invoke-VMScript], ViError

          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Client20_VmGuestServiceImpl_DownloadFileFromGuest_DownloadError,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.InvokeVmScript



      To notice that I connected correctly to the vcenter before run the Invoke-Script and that the script contained in $NetworkSettings has been run correctly on the guest VM. The only problem seems to happen when the Invoke-VMScript try to read the result. If I run the Invoke-VMScript again the physical host instead the VCenter everything is working.

      Vcenter, physical host and the machine who the invoke-vmscript are in the same network.

      Same problem if I use the Copy-VMGuestFile


      Any ideas?
