I'm trying to connect to a snapcreator server using SnapCreator PowerShell Toolkit, but it is not woking in a SC server (over windows) running HTTP instead of HTTPS. For a SC server running HTTPS in a Linux it connects without any issue.
Customer had some problem to run HTTPS with SnapCreator in their windows server, so I'm trying to make it work with HTTP.
PS C:\> Connect-ScServer -Name xyz -Credential $sc -port 8080
Connect-ScServer : An error occurred while making the HTTP request to
https://10.10.10.10:8080/services/v1/EngineService/. This could be due to the fact that the server certificate is not
configured properly with HTTP.SYS in the HTTPS case. This could also be caused by a mismatch of the security binding
between the client and the server.

There are two versions of the Snap Creator PowerShell toolkit.
The 4.0 version works with Snap Creator 4.0 and only knows how to talk via HTTP.
The 4.1 version works with Snap Creator 4.1 and knows how to talk via HTTPS.
Please be sure you are using the correct version that matches your Snap Creator Server.
Hope this helps,

I pinged the web team to find out why the snapcreator.com site is not responding.
I know they have been updating some pages, so it may be related.
Hopefully we'll get it back online shortly.

Sorry that I neglected to update this post - I updated a different one.
Basically NetApp has gone through all of the community software for Snap Creator (plugins and the PowerShell Toolkit) and decided that they cannot be distributed through the snapcreator.com website or github as has been done in the past.
Instead, all of this software must go through a third party code scanning process and then must be posted in the NetApp Utility Toolchest.
The code scan is in progress, but this is done through a third party and the scheduling is out of our control.
We are currently expecting the code scan to be complete around the end of May.
Once that is complete we will post the Snap Creator PowerShell Toolkit and the first batch of plugins.
If they finish faster then we will post sooner - if it takes longer, then we won't be able to post until a later day.
I asked that the SnapCreator.com website be updated with this information, but unfortunately they decided to power down the site instead.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
