The custom task script:

importPackage(java.lang);

importPackage(com.cloupia.service.cIM.inframgr);

var vms = input.vmId;

var vmIds = vms.split(",");

var action = input.action;

try{

  for(var i=0; i<vmIds.length; i++){

  performAction(parseInt(vmIds[i]), action);

  }

}catch(e){

  logger.addError("Error occured"+e);

  ctxt.setFailed("Task failed to retrieve vm info.");

  ctxt.exit();

}

function performAction(vmId, action){

  var result = false;

  logger.addInfo("Getting Info. for VM : "+vmId);

  var vmSummary = ctxt.getAPI().getVMwareVMInfo(vmId);

  if(vmSummary != null){

  if(action.equalsIgnoreCase("Enable")){

  if(vmSummary.isVmrcEnabled()){

  logger.addWarning("VMRC Console Access already enabled for this VM");

  return;

  }else{

  vmSummary.setVmrcEnabled(true);

  result = InfraPersistenceUtil.modifyVMWareVMSummary(vmSummary);

  if(result)

  logger.addInfo("VMRC Console Access Enabled successfully.");
