Running multiply Powershell scripts at the same time

Loves-to-Learn

I have been working the past 2 weeks with getting powershell scripts and cron jobs stable. but find that when i run 6 scripts into the input.conf, i causes issue on some of the scripts randomly. one of the errors is

"Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute"

The thing is the powershell script is running the same PS1 file where the parameter is almost identical. and when i restart the service the same error can come from one of the other script and the one just failed

At the moment i have been able to fix the issue with implementing a sleep in front of every script, and this seems to work, but are not the ideal solution

Here is the debug log with the sleep. in basic it a script using dbatools and run some queries.

I do an import of dbatools at the beginning, and for the output it also looks good in splunk when the script runs succesful.

I tried to do an ISE where i added all the same script lines as in the input.conf, but are unable to reproduce it no matte how much i want it to fail.

i also had some different approaches, to collect all the script info to a variable and output at the bottom

run as Dot, Source

Run as a isolated function with powershell command

The only thing that make it stable is the sleep.

Re: Running multiply Powershell scripts at the same time

It seems the scripts shares the same run space some how. don't know what the best approach is to execute powershell scripts from splunks. seems like it causing a lot of trouble

here are some more error i get when receiving the exception from the scripts

 

Script failed System.Management.Automation.RuntimeException: The following error occurred while loading the extended type data file: Error in TypeData "Sqlcollaborative.Dbatools.dbaSystem.DbatoolsExceptionRecord": The member SerializationDepth is already present.

just to say when adding a sleep; command in from of every script, over time they start to run successful
