Two issues hit.  Quoting on Windows and passing in a password string to curl where the password contained an & symbol.  Windows didn't like that & symbol and fancy quoting attempts just made it worse.

Micro Focus, please don't get rid of "RAS Command".  It was a simple cousin to Server Automation ROSH.  Very useful in some situations where you don't really want to create yet-another firewall rule and yet-another service account for OO to run a command on a RAS server via "Remote Command".

Hello RiverRat_1

Thank you for contacting Micro Focus Forum.

My name is Carlos, I am from the OO/CSA team.

 

Regarding your question, even the operation has been deprecated, it can still be used. Alternatively, you can use the Remote Command operation to execute your commands on the RAS server.

 

I hope this information finds you well.

The issue with the Remote Command step is it's not using the exisiting Central<->RAS channel like the RAS Command step does.

I have to specific a protocol to execute the whatever I need to run.  Since this is Windows, the protocol would be WMI and I'm not so confident my customer is going to allow that - yet another firewall port and yet another service account with perms they won't want to allow (heavy compliance issues here).

The RAS Command works but I've hit a situation with curl where running it at the command line it work but using the RAS Command step it gives a failure.
