PowerCLI For Tenants Merges into PowerCLI 6.0 R1 Installer




It’s a great day in PowerCLI! As of PowerCLI 6.0 R1, we have merged the PowerCLI for Tenants installer into the core PowerCLI installer. Now customers only need to download a single installer for all PowerCLI use-cases. When installing PowerCLI you will be prompted to choose which ‘Features’ you would like to install.




Why is this great? This is great because now it is easier for our customers to install PowerCLI and select the items they need. One download, one install… Simplicity.




During the installation you will see the options:

  • vSphere PowerCLI
  • vCloud Air/vCD PowerCLI

If you plan on only installing what used to be PowerCLI for Tenants, you would select “vCloud Air/vCD PowerCLI” and choose “This feature will be installed on local hard drive“.

If you do not plan on using the vCloud Air or vCloud Director PowerCLI features, you can select “This feature will not be available“.

Click through the rest of the installer and you will be good to go!
