I am trying to write a PowerShell script using PowerCLI modules that retrieves the following data automatically, writes them to registry keys, and launches a program that reads the data from the registry keys:
This script is not meant to be run interactively, and due to compliance reasons, I am not allowed to use the VICredentialStore. I am also not allowed to store credentials in a password-key file.
I currently have the script working interactively, where it requests the user for credentials upon execution. How do I convert the script, mainly the Connect-VIServer part, to run non-interactively with the restrictions above?
A quick Google search suggested using a group managed service account (gMSA), but PowerCLI (and vSphere) does not seem to support this. Are there plans to add support for gMSA in the future?
