If you managed to make it to VMworld Europe this year, you may have seen me talking about VI Toolkit, along with my colleague Andrey Anastasov and also Dennis Zimmer, CTO of Icomasoft. Icomasoft has a really cool product that allows you to automate using PowerCLI / VI Toolkit from directly inside VMware’s VI Client, as opposed to using a separate command window. A lot of people really appreciate the added structure and control this gives. Not only that, but PowerScripter also gives you integrated scheduling, something that can be quite tricky to get right.
Icomasoft’s PowerScripter reached version 1.5 recently, and adds experimental support for vSphere 4 as well as enhanced reporting capabilities that let you filter, sort, search and export to Excel. Check out all the details on Icomasoft’s site.
