Synchronizing cDOT Cron Schedules Cluster to Cluster

The following tool can be used to synchronize cron schedules from one Clustered Data ONTAP cluster to another (even if they are on a different ONTAP version.)

The tool can be run in a variety of ways. The example below is run from simply double clicking a BAT file - no prompts need to be answered:

Image: Example running Sync-Cron.ps1 using a BAT file
The Script - Sync-Cron.ps1

## To run in a BAT file (switches optional):
# Powershell.exe .\Sync-Cron.ps1

## To create $SecurePasswordString run:
# PS> (Read-Host -AsSecureString) | ConvertFrom-SecureString
# N.B. This string only works when logged in as the same Windows user that created it.

If($SecurePasswordString){ $Password = $SecurePasswordString | ConvertTo-SecureString }

FUNCTION Wr { Param([String]$ToDisplay,[String]$Color = "WHITE")
  IF($ToDisplay){ Write-Host $ToDisplay -ForegroundColor $Color -NoNewLine } ELSE { Write-Host } }
