For any one else attempting to connect to their Barracuda Load Balancer ADC using Powershell here is an example script I created. I hope someone else finds it useful

$user = "<username>"
$pass = "<password>"
$uri = "http://<your load balancer>:8000/restapi/v2"
$authbody = @{
	username = $user
	password = $pass
} | ConvertTo-Json

#Login to Barracuda Load Balancer
$auth = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Uri "$uri/login" -ContentType "application/json" -Body $authbody
#Get just the authentication token from the output
$authtoken = $auth.token

#Manually build curl -u equivalent
#Barracuda expects the equivalent of "curl -u token:<blank password>"
$base64AuthInfo = [Convert]::ToBase64String([Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetBytes(($authtoken + ":")))
$header = @{Authorization = ("Basic " + $base64AuthInfo)}
$stuff = Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET -Uri "$uri/virtual_service_groups" -ContentType "application/json" -Headers $header
$stuff.data

Can help you if you need, i've written some scripts using the API for certificate imports and bindings... and it's sometimes a pita... especially documentation ;)

I like where you are going here. To bad I am stuck on a Windows 2008 server which failed on some of these commands.

I guess I can see if I can force an update.
