Version 188.8.131.523 was released yesterday with a new SUPER helpful parameter, HttpTimeOut, on for Connect-PfaController cmdlet. I mistakenly introducing a very minor but inconvenient bug in 2.7 where some debug parameters made it into a single cmdlet that set the TimeOutSec for Invoke-RestMethod to 900ms (doh!).
So while removing some of the debug logic I decided to implement the HttpTimeOut parameter which is scoped globally for connections after being set in the Connect-PfaController cmdlet.
Here is a simple example of how to use it:
$FA = Get-PfaApiToken -FlashArray $FlashArray -Credential (Get-Credential) | Connect-PfaController <strong>-HttpTimeOut 10000</strong>
In the above example the HttpTimeOut is being set to 10,000ms. Also notice that I am using pipelining from Get-PfaApiToken –> Connect-PfaController to wrap all the connectivity to the FlashArray into one line of script.
