    I downloaded 6-3 r1 today, would this be a good lab? A couple of things I noticed is the get-powercliversion does not return anything, and I can’t load the vmware modules (or at least I don’t know how to)

    Admiring the commitment you put into your site and detailed information you present.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while
    that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Excellent read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    The lab HOL-1721-SDC-6 has been retired and is no longer available in the Hands-on Labs catalog. The labs get updated every year and the older versions are removed to make way for the new ones. We do have a new PowerCLI lab available HOL-1810-05-SDC, and it can be accessed using this link: http://labs.hol.vmware.com/HOL/catalogs/lab/3628. You can always click the ‘ALL LABS’ tab in the top left-hand column and search for PowerCLI. This will not only bring up the latest PowerCLI lab, but also any other labs that highlight integration with PowerCLI.
