Redirect URLs to 127.0.0.1 in HOSTS file 1.4.19

This script can be used as a quick way to block access to a URL. The provided URLs (comma separated) are placed in a 'ControlUp' section of the HOSTS file, where they are directed to 127.0.0.1. As a result DNS lookup of these URLs always point to home, essentially preventing access to a website unless you know the IP number. After this the command IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS is run to clear the DNS cache. tags:ip blocking, hosts

This script will only place a host in Maintenance if the cluster it is part of is DRSFullyAutomated. If the host uses a VSAN and the PowerCLI version is high enough the default VsanEvacuationMode setting will be used. This is only supported with PowerCLI 6 or higher. tags:vsphere,host,maintenance,vmware
