Need to report on powered on VMs that are not pingable spanning multiple domains
So have I have this nice script that goes out and checks for vms that have outdated vmware tools, I have one for linux machines and one for windows...both work very nicely. But one day about 4 out of 1000 weren't pingable the next morning when this scheduled script ran. This concerned my manager and asked that I either send out a change notice every time this is run or account for the vms that aren't pingable after the vmware tools update. I went with trying to add a check in the script to see if the vm is pingable after the vmware tools update.
I have found this script below, it works good but only my domain, we have servers that run on a total of three domains, for example most of my servers run on funplace.net, domain and from another division some servers dns are in the coolerplace.net, and a third division is the coolestplace.org. My script only is able to accurately test VMs on my domain funplace.net, and vms that are in coolerplace.net & coolestplace.org come up as not responding. Is there a way to have the script check each domain before it gives a status of not responding?
