terraform: execute powershell on target via winrm

terraform: execute powershell remotely

  1. you could even use terraform as command line client to run scripts remotely (as an alternative to ssh).

    • copy script to target

    • execute on target

    • connect via winRM and a domain account

the greatest hassle: open up winrm, use ConfigureRemotingForAnsible.ps1 as starter.

resource "null_resource" "terraform_sample"{

  triggers = {
    last_windows_update = "2020-03-24.008"
  }

  connection {
    type     = "winrm"
    user     = " DOMAIN \\MServiceAdonis"
    password = "***"
    host     = "xxxadonis4.DOMAIN.local"
    timeout  = "20s"
    https    = true (or false)
    use_ntlm = true
    insecure = true
  }

  provisioner "file" {
    source      = "D:/data/projects/terraform/local/tf-scripts/"
    destination = "d:/tf-scripts"
  }
  provisioner "remote-exec" {
    inline = [
      "powershell -File d:/tf-scripts/info.ps1"
    ]
  }
}
