  • Section 3:  Click on the "Machines" Object, then select all the virtual machines in this folder.

A command line arguments window will now appear. This allows you to enter the credentials required for this script action. As we are leveraging the shared credentials store, do NOT change anything and click "Ok".

Because this Script Action was invoked and run on multiple machines at once, there may be multiple different results. ControlUp will group the results in this case. You can click on any Group on the left hand side of the window  to see the specific results for each group.

This script action will list the following info:

  • POD Name
  • Gateway Name
  • Gateway Address
  • Gateway Zone
  • Gateway Version
