Enforce synchronous run of command lets in PowerShell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have 3 cmdlets in Powershell script.

    Unfortunetly it seems that at least on it is running asychronous.

    How to enforce run commandlets sychronously?

    Is there any cmdlet parameter for that?

  • What do you mean by "running asynchronous"? Usually cmdlets run one after each other.

    Show your code!

    First commandlet is still running asynchronous.

  • It is "CmdLets" "not command lets".

    Your code is damaged and all posted on one line.  It will not run.

    This is close to what it should look like.

    $resourceGroup = 'tztestresgroup'
    $vmName = 'orioracetz'
    $backupvault = 'tzbackupvault'
    Set-AzureRmVMCustomScriptExtension -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroup -VMName $vmName -Name orioracetz_test_begin -Location 'West Europe' -StorageAccountName "orioracetz" -StorageAccountKey 'uAhxX1111mMTO42hExc0aXzfz95aYNDnpK+mVFxQfQfySRCjyxZHfq0xYQuPA33EqjZqv91mzk8t8z7MrogKEw==' -FileName enableBackupMode.ps1 -ContainerName scripts1 -Run enableBackupMode.ps1
    Get-AzureRmRecoveryServicesVault -Name $backupvault | 
    $namedContainer = Get-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupContainer -ContainerType AzureVM -Status Registered -Name orioracetz
    $item = Get-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupItem -Container $namedContainer -WorkloadType AzureVM
    $job = Backup-AzureRmRecoveryServicesBackupItem -Item $item
    Set-AzureRmVMCustomScriptExtension -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroup -VMName $vmName -Name orioracetz_test_begin -Location 'West Europe' -StorageAccountName orioracetz -StorageAccountKey 'uAhxX1111mMTO42hExc0aXzfz95aYNDnpK+mVFxQfQfySRCjyxZHfq0xYQuPA33EqjZqv91mzk8t8z7MrogKEw==' -FileName disableBackupMode.ps1 -ContainerName scripts1 -Run disableBackupMode.ps1

    I suggest you start by learning basic PowerShell.

    CmdLets do not run async.  Some operation on Azure may just get scheduled and may require you to poll them for completion status.

  • Ok thanks.

    Is there is any way to pull out for output of cmdlets status in single script to wait before proceeding.

    Maybe is there any other method to achive that? This could be done with Runbooks ?

    It will be work if I'll create 3 separated scripts ?

  • I can see no way to guess what you are trying to ask.

  • None of your commands require waiting.  They are not commands that schedule a long running operation.

    Please take the time to learn PowerShell so you can understand how to use these commands correctly.

    You can post in the Azure forums for assistance with using Azure CmdLets.
