Hyper-V Server 2012 actor adapter requests and responses
The actor adapter can execute different PowerShell commands on Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2. The adapter requests contain values that are used to execute PowerShell commands. The set of values used to execute each PowerShell command is referred to as an operation.
If there are multiple targets in the configuration, but no target is named in the adapter request, then the first target (
<config>) in the configuration list (
<configs>) is the default target.
You can use the information in this topic with the Call Adapter activity to create an adapter request. For detailed instructions about how to use the Call Adapter activity, see Call Adapter activity and Creating and configuring the Call Adapter activity.
