    A request

    One feature that I would like to see added to PowerCLI “New-VM” is the ability to add CPU and Cores during deployment so that the VM doesn’t have to be rebooted to apply these after deployment. I know the “Set-VM” contains this but it would be better added to “New-VM” as well.

    for changing cores I use this example but requires the VM to be shutdown.

    $VMname = VMname
    $spec = New-Object –Type VMware.Vim.VirtualMAchineConfigSpec –Property @{“NumCoresPerSocket” = $_.cores}

    We showed a “Tech Preview” of a future version of PowerCLI that has this, hang tight 🙂
