Wait for Appliance services to start.


Wait-HPOVApplianceStart [[-Appliance] <String>] [<CommonParameters>]


Internal module helper function to wait for the appliance services to start. This helper function will be called by Send-HPOVRequest when the [System.Net.WebRequest] GetResponse() client generates an [Net.WebException] exception. Then, this function will be called to provide the caller with an indication that the appliance is starting its services. This will display two prompts:

  1. An initial text-based progress bar while the System.Net.WebRequest is able to access the web service on the appliance to begin polling for service startup status.
  2. Write-Progress indicator displaying the overall service startup.

If any service fails to startup, this function will cause a terminating error, informing the caller to go visit the appliance kiosk console to get more information about the startup error.

When the appliance successfully starts, this function will return.
