Community PowerCLI Scripts Week 51

As Christmas is approaching at the moment it reminds me of good will and helping others, something the PowerCLI community knows all about.  I constantly see people helping each other, writing scripts, sharing tips or just meeting up to talk about PowerShell and PowerCLI.  Sometimes scripts are even written by multiple people with the same end goal in mind “Helping the community”

The first of these scripts is such a script – multiple authors but first started by Josh Atwell, a great script for ensuring your VMs are ready for vMotion….
