SRM 8.5 pre power on step command

Hello all,

Need to create a pre power step command so that the VM on the recovery site starts up with the network adapter disconnected.

I try the bellow one:

Get-VM -Name VM_NAME | Get-NetworkAdapter | where{$_.ConnectionState.Connected} | Set-NetworkAdapter -Connected:$false -Confirm:$false

I put the bellow powershell command, but when i test the recovery step i receive an error.

unfortunately the SRM custom steps don't support PowerCLI directly, you will need to either create a wrapper/write it in a supported language, you may find the following useful:

Good luck,
