Re: Convert .dar file: to be compatible with WFA 4.2

Hi Vikramjeet,

 

Here is the source code from the original source file:

 

param
(
  [parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Cluster IP address")]
  [string]$Cluster,
  
  [parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Storage Virtual Machine where User exists")]
  [string]$svmname,
  
  [parameter(Mandatory=$false, HelpMessage="Create a Audit log for updates")]
  [bool]$createauditlog=$false,
  
  [parameter(Mandatory=$false, HelpMessage="File path to text file")]
  [string]$auditfilepath=$("c:\audit\"+ $Cluster +"-"+ $svmname + "-PasswordChange-"+(get-date).ToString("yyyyMMdd-hhmmss")+'.txt')

 )
 
#Start here

Connect-WfaCluster $Cluster
$credentials =  get-wfacredentials -host newpassword


$userinfo = Get-NcUser $credentials.username -Vserver $svmname -AuthMethod password
 
if ($auditfilepath)
      {
      foreach($line in $userinfo)
	{
	(get-date).ToString("yyyyMMdd-hhmmss")+":"+$line |Out-File -Append  -FilePath $auditfilepath 
              }
      }

#Validate user exists
if ( $userinfo.Count -lt 1)
    {
    if ($auditfilepath)
      {
      (get-date).ToString("yyyyMMdd-hhmmss")+":Unable to find a valid user account for $Credentials.UserName on $svmname"|Out-File -Append  -FilePath $auditfilepath 
      }
    throw "Unable to find a valid user account for $UserName on $svmname"
    }
try
{
Set-NcUserPassword  -credential $credentials -VserverContext $svmname -Verbose
}
catch
{
    $ErrorMessage = $_.Exception.Message
    $FailedItem = $_.Exception.ItemName
   if ($auditfilepath)
         {
         (get-date).ToString("yyyyMMdd-hhmmss")+":Password for user $Credentials.Username was not Successfully updated for $svmname on $cluster ”|Out-File -Append  -FilePath $auditfilepath 
         $FailedItem|Out-File -Append  -FilePath $auditfilepath 
         $ErrorMessage|Out-File -Append  -FilePath $auditfilepath 
         }
      throw "$ErrorMessage"
    break
    }
finally
{
    Get-WFALogger -Info -message $("the password change was successful for $svmname on cluster $Cluster")
    if ($auditfilepath)
         {
         (get-date).ToString("yyyyMMdd-hhmmss")+":Password for user $Credentials.Username was Successfully updated for $svmname on $cluster ”|Out-File -Append  -FilePath $auditfilepath 
         }
}
    

 

For future reference I recommend using this PowerShell Module created by @mirko

 

http://www.wfaguy.com/2017/02/change-version-of-dar-file.html

 

It is a powershell module that will enable you to covert between WFA versions. For example:

 

PS C:\Scripts\PowerShell\Projects\WFA\ReversionWFA> import-module .\ReversionWfa.psm1
PS C:\Scripts\PowerShell\Projects\WFA\ReversionWFA> Set-WfaVersion .\close_locked_file.dar -Version 4.2 -RemoveDependencies
DOWNGRADING DAR-FILES TO VERSION 4.2
MAJOR : 4
MINOR : 2
Processing .\close_locked_file.dar

Find your new dar files in [C:\Scripts\PowerShell\Projects\WFA\ReversionWFA\Wfa Versions 4.2]

 

  • Download the "ReversionWFA" powershell module: http://www.wfaguy.com/2017/02/change-version-of-dar-file.html
  • Extract the module
  • Open a powershell session
  • Browse to the path where you extracted the module
  • Run Import-Module .\ReversionWfa.psm1
  • Run Set-WfaVersion and provide cmdlet parameters (EG file, WFA version, remove dependancies, force etc)
  • Import the updated .dar file into WFA.

Note: This module only supports conversion from WFA 3.0 and above. As the .dar file you wanted to convert was developed using WFA 2.X I had to import it into an old version of WFA 2.X in my lab, export it then import into WFA 3.X then use the above process to covert it WFA 4.X (painful but possible Smiley Happy

 

Hope this helps
