Last year at VMworld I gave a talk about PowerCLI (back then it was VI Toolkit for Windows) which was attended by about 650 people. No eggs were thrown so I have to guess it was an ok session. Eric Siebert agreed and recommended that it be made freely available. Well, now it is, and you can view the session using your VMworld account.
The session has a high-level overview of PowerCLI, samples and a couple of pretty cool demos courtesy of my colleague Andrey Anastasov and Mr. PowerGUI, Dmitry Sotnikov of Quest Software. If you’re hoping to get your vSphere environment more automated, it’s worth checking out.
