    Invoke-VMScript An error occurred while sending the request

    EloHHH Lurker



      We have a Vcenter(6.5) which includes afew Esxi 6.0 servers(all the servers configured same with 6.0 version, but the server locations are different), we need to send some commands to VM(windows or linux) through powercli and Invoke-VMScript  cmdlet,

      actually it is working fine but just on some of these esxi servers and their VMs, but for other esxi servers' VMs the Invoke function is freezing(20-30sec) and then returns following error when we send a command:


      Invoke-VMScript -ScriptText "pwd"  -VM $VMName -GuestCredential $DCLocalCredential


      Invoke-VMScript : 7/9/2019 11:10:25 PM  Invoke-VMScript         An error occurred while sending the request.

      At line:1 char:1

      + Invoke-VMScript -ScriptText $check  -VM $VMName -GuestCredential $DCL ...

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