Happy New Years everyone!

I just got back into the swing of things after taking some much needed time off over the holiday break. While catching up on my email, I also re-visited one of my pet projects I had been working on right before the break. I needed to launcha specific PowerCLI script upon firstboot from a linux system, specifically PhotonOS leveragingPowerCLICore. My first few attempts had failed and in troubleshooting the issue further, I found the following cryptic error message in the system logs:

The shell cannot be started. A failure occurred during initialization:

The type initializer for 'System.Management.Automation.ConfigPropertyAccessor' threw an exception.

After a bit ofGoogling, I found the following Github PR which seems to indicate that the HOME environmental variable maynot properly configured or readableby Powershell. The quick fixwas to simply definethe HOME directorywithin the shell script that starts upthe PowerCLI script.

Below is a snippet of what I needed to add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to automatically run my PowerCLI script:

exportHOME=/root /usr/bin/powershell -NonInteractive -File /root/MyPowerCLI-Script.ps1

The following command was also useful in troubleshooting and verifying that my PowerCLI script had properly executed since there was no output in my script log:

journalctl --no-pager | grep rc.local
