Icinga Powershell Module Offline Mode Install

Hello

:slight_smile: After some push and nudge by @cstein want to explore the powershell module and move away from nsclient. We already have puppet and sccm method to install and configure agent. I do not want to touch those and just install the powershell module alone without installing / reinstalling the agent.

Also we need to install it in offline mode.

[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = "tls12, tls11";
$ProgressPreference = "SilentlyContinue";
$global:IcingaFrameworkKickstartSource = 'C:\iCinga\icinga-powershell-kickstart.psi';
$Script = (Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing -Uri $global:IcingaFrameworkKickstartSource).Content;
$Script += "`r`n`r`n Start-IcingaFrameworkWizard;";
Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock ([Scriptblock]::Create($Script));

And boom error error error :slight_smile: Obviously I did I mistake.

Hello there!

@cstein is the right person to bug about this actually :slight_smile:

I will ask him to have a look at this later, maybe we can figure it out together :wink:

Have a nice week,

Hello,

the issue here is that local files are read as β€œbinary” content and not text by using Invoke-WebRequest.
To resolve this, either use Get-Content instead of Invoke-WebRequest or convert the byte array to string first:

$global:IcingaFrameworkKickstartSource = 'C:\iCinga\icinga-powershell-kickstart.psi';
$Script = (Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing -Uri $global:IcingaFrameworkKickstartSource).Content;
$Script = [System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetString($Script);
$Script += "`r`n`r`n Start-IcingaFrameworkWizard;";
Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock ([Scriptblock]::Create($Script));

I hope this helps!
