SolidFire PowerShell Tools 1.2 Released

SolidFire has just released PowerShell Tools v. 1.2 Biggest pieces here in my opinion revolve around adding support for LDAP and replication features. Looking forward to kicking the tires on some of this in the lab next week. Check it out for yourself on Github.

SolidFire PowerShell Tools version 1.2 contains the following improvements:

  • Added new cmdlet functionality for LDAP, scheduling, remote logging, login sessions, volume pairing, cluster pairing, and bulk volume tasks.
  • Expanded Connect-SFCluster cmdlet functionality:
  • Added port attribute so that SolidFire Support can connect to ports other than 443/442.
  • Connections to Element OS API patch versions now available.
  • Improved error message reporting to be more descriptive and contain API cluster responses.
  • Expanded available snapshot replication parameters for Get-SFGroupSnapshot, Get-SFSnapshot, New- SFGroupSnapshot, and New-SFSnapshot cmdlets.
  • Expanded Get-SFVolumecmdlet to accept volume names as an alternate choice to volume IDs. The following are new SolidFire cmdlets in the version 1.2 release:
  • Complete-SFClusterPairing: [Cluster] Completes the cluster pairing processing using the encoded key created by the Start-SFClusterPairing cmdlet.
  • Complete-SFVolumePairing: [Cluster] Completes the pairing of two volumes.
  • Get-SFClusterPair: [Cluster] Lists all of the clusters with which a cluster is paired.
  • Get-SFLdapConfiguration: [Cluster] Gets the active LDAP configuration on cluster.
  • Get-SFLoginSessionInfo: [Cluster] Returns the period of time a login authentication is valid for both login shells and the TUI.
