comment Server 2012: how to plan for storage failover?
no; my entire endeavor is to avoid that. My understanding is that with SMB 3 + Mulipath I/O + CSVs, I can use 2 LUNs on my two different EMC devices to create a CSV. The CSV should leverage SMB 3.0 transparent failover. See channel9.msdn.com/Events/IT-Camps/…

I believe you're correct. the -batch command also later allowed me to prove that my service account hadn't cached the key yet (which I did fix with PsExec). Thank you!

Interestingly enough, adding the -batch argument appeared to do better than tell me why it failed -- it actually appears to have made it start working! I see the output I expect to see in the log file. After some more testing I'm going to confirm this as the answer.

Hi arober, thanks for responding. using -v -i -noageant and a passwordless private key produced same results -- works perfectly from the console, works perfectly from command prompt calling powershell.exe C:\Path\To\Script.ps1 -- and hangs from a scheduled task. I don't see any output in the event log even with the -v flag.

comment powershell call operator with multiple arguments?
Interestingly enough, that didn't fix it, but writing out the entire string does...from the command line. See my answer. It works for the console, and when I call powershell.exe C:\Scripts\script.ps1 but doesn't work from a scheduled task (which I think is a separate problem)

Ahh, a GREAT point. I added the host key as my user account but it wouldn't have been added as the server account. I'll use PsExec to run the command prompt as my service account and add the host key that way to ensure it's not the issue. I'll report back; thanks for the tip

comment Can I schedule machine boot via Dell iDRAC?
This does appear to be the case. I found an internal cloud datacenter to throw a management VM on and am using an SSH script on this to remote into the idrac and use racadm to send a powerup command to the server. It's working perfectly manually; working on the scheduled task aspect of it now. Thanks for the straightforward answer! This did end up being the way to go.
