I'm trying to create a combined PS script that will complete the following:
Ping a specific VM to ensure its currently on this host (clustered Hyper-V)
If the VM is on this host, delete snapshots older than 2 weeks (we take weekly snapshots), then Perform a VM-Shutdown, Wait for 1 hour, then start it back up (so the disks can merge)
The above script is working, except I haven't figured out how to get a list of snapshots, then delete ones older than 2 weeks.
If you could help that would be great!
If you need any more info let me know.
##This Script Imports the Hyper-V Powershell Modules, then initiates a VM Shutdown, waits, then starts the VM back up
##Imports the Hyper-V Modules
Import-Module 'C:\Program Files\modules\Hyperv\Hyperv.psd1'
## Checks if VM exists on this node, then shuts it down, waits then starts it back up
$Result = ping-vm -vm 'VMNAME'
if($Result.Status -eq 'Success')
Invoke-VMShutdown -VM 'VMNAME' -Server 'HOSTNAME' -Force
Start-VM -VM 'VMNAME'
