    This step verifies the website accessibility.


    1. To allow the script to run inside the guest OS of a processed VM, it is required that you have Microsoft PowerShell 3.0, .Net Framework 4.0 and IIS 8.0 (or later) installed on each VM for which you enable this step.
    2. To allow the script to verify the website accessibility, the processed VM must run Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (or later).
