Weekly email reporting Snapshots within Vcenter

We currently have a Windows Vcenter server and we are upgrading to the VCSA appliance.

We have an old PowerShell script that runs every week to send and email report on snapshots.

Has anyone had a similar situation or know of a PowerShell script that can be run on the VCSA?

 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

You are not the first person to have this requirement, I recommend searching this area of VMTN.

Since, in theory, you can install PowerShell on the VCSA, you could run PowerCLI scripts on the VCSA.
But I strongly advise against that!!!

You should treat your VCSA as a black-box, and changes you make will most probably void your support.

You can run PowerCLI scripts on any server, as long as they can connect to the VCSA.

I would advise using a dedicated server (Windows or Linux), or even a container, to run your scripts.
