    Is is possible to pass parmaters into OVF? Or does anyone have simlar issues?

    The needs is to test different servers, verify each one before going live.

    Currenly I'm hacking it by setting a global Variable before calling Invoke-OperationValidation

    
    $UrlOverride = Get-Variable UrlOverride -Scope Global  -ValueOnly -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
    if ($UrlOverride -ne $null) 
    {
            $Url = $Global:UrlOverride 
    }
    

    which works, but is far from ideal

    My experience has been that you need to do what you have done by setting a variable in the test that gets updated before calling the test or have the test read a config file that contains the variable value(s) and you have to update the file before calling the test.

    Looks like someone has proposed this already: https://github.com/PowerShell/Operation-Validation-Framework/issues/6

    Pester supports it already, but not sure about OVF. (Presumably not, or that issue wouldn't exist.)

    thanks,
    I totally missed/misunderstood the -Script parameter in Pester
