Powershell VMware NTP


Purpose:
This is my first powershell script. It connects to a esxi host and removes all NTP servers dynamically then sets the new ones.

param([string]$VC, [string]$NTP1, [string]$NTP2)

If ($VC){$strVC = $VC}
ELSE{$strVC = Read-Host "What is the Vcenter hostname?"}
If (!$strVC){Write-Host "Error: Vcenter not entered";exit}

If ($NTP1){$strNTP1 = $NTP1}
ELSE{$strNTP1 = Read-Host "What is the first NTP server?"}
If (!$strNTP1){Write-Host "Error: NTP1 not entered need at least one NTP server";exit}

If ($NTP2){$strNTP2 = $NTP2}
ELSE{$strNTP2 = Read-Host "What is the second NTP server?"}


Connect-VIServer -Server $strVC  #Enter your vCenter Server

$NtpServers = @($strNTP1,$strNTP2)
#http://day2dayadmin.blogspot.com/2009/10/ntp-powershell-its-about-time.html
$ESXHosts = Get-VMHost | Select-Object Name,@{Name="NTP Server";Expression={$_ | Get-VMHostNtpServer}}, @{Name="NTP Running";Expression={($_ | Get-VMHostService | Where-Object {$_.key -eq "ntpd"}).Running}} | Sort-Object -Property "NTP Running", "NTP Server"



ForEach ($ESXHost in $ESXHosts) {
   
   
#Write-Host $ESXHost

   #remove current NTP servers
   Write-Host "Removing NTP servers" -BackgroundColor "Green" -ForegroundColor "Black"
   Remove-VMHostNtpServer -NtpServer $ESXHost."NTP Server" -VMHost $ESXHost.Name
   #Add new NTP servers
   Write-Host "Adding New NTP servers" -BackgroundColor "Green" -ForegroundColor "Black"
   Add-VmHostNtpServer -NtpServer $NtpServers -VMHost $ESXHost.Name
   #Stop NTP service   
   Write-Host "Stopping NTP Service" -BackgroundColor "Green" -ForegroundColor "Black"
   Get-VmHostService -VMHost $ESXHost.Name | Where-Object {$_.key -eq "ntpd"} | Restart-VMHostService
 
}
Write-Host "Done!"
