EM-WinRM

An EventMachine client for Windows Remote Management (WinRM). This allows you to invoke commands on Windows machines from any machine that can run Ruby. This client leverages the EventMachine reactor to run the same command across multiple machines in parallel (think net-ssh-multi).

WinRM allows you to call native objects in Windows. This includes, but is not limited to, running batch scripts, powershell scripts and fetching WMI variables. For more information on WinRM, please visit Microsoft’s WinRM site.

Example Usage

servers = {
  'ec2-75-xxx-xxx-127.compute-1.amazonaws.com' => {:port => 80, :user => 'Administrator', :password => 'super_secret_passowrd'},
  'ec2-50-xxx-xxx-141.compute-1.amazonaws.com' => {:port => 80, :user => 'Administrator', :password => 'super_secret_passowrd'},
  'ec2-75-xxx-xxx-192.compute-1.amazonaws.com' => {:port => 80, :user => 'Administrator', :password => 'super_secret_passowrd'}
}

def h
  @highline ||= HighLine.new
end

def print_data(host, data, color = :cyan)
  if data =~ /\n/
      data.split(/\n/).each { |d| print_data(host, d, color) }
  else
    puts "#{h.color(host, color)} #{data.chomp}"
  end
end

# create a session
session = EventMachine::WinRM::Session.new(:log_level => :info)

# add some servers
servers.each do |host,options|
  session.use(host,options)
end

# create some callbacks
session.on_output do |host, data|
  print_data(host, data)
end
session.on_error do |host, err|
  print_data(host, data, :red)
end
session.on_finish do |host|
  host = host == :done ? 'All Servers' : host
  print_data(host, 'done.')
end

# run a command
session.relay_command('dir')

Gives the following output:

Thanks to Dan Wanek who wrote the WinRM Ruby client gem that is used heavily by this gem.

Also big thanks to Paul Morton and Chris McClimans (aka Hippie Hacker) for lots of real world testing and features!
