New Release: PowerCLI 11.1.0

As 2018 comes to a close, we have one more release for you in the form of PowerCLI 11.1.0! If you’re keeping track, that brings us to 6 official PowerCLI releases in the 2018 calendar year. To quickly summarize 2018: PowerCLI has gone multi-platform, added 2 new modules, added 25 new cmdlets, and supported new VMware product versions faster than ever! There were also quite a few other updates that involve PowerCLI, such as the Fling modules containing high-level cmdlets for NSX-T and VMware Cloud on AWS, the Code Capture addition to the HTML5 Web Client Fling, and the brand-new PowerShell DSC Resources for VMware!

PowerCLI 11.1.0 comes with the following updates:

  • Added support to the SRM module for MacOS and Linux
  • Added support for SRM 8.1
  • Updated 2 Storage module cmdlets
  • Updated DeployAutomation and ImageBuilder module dependencies

Let’s take a look at some of the updates.

Site Recovery Manager Module Updates

The VMware.VimAutomation.SRM module is the newest module to be converted to for multi-platform support. That means this module can now be used with PowerShell Core on MacOS and Linux! This module has also received updates to support Site Recovery Manager 8.1. More information on this new version of SRM can be found at the following: VMware Site Recovery Manager 8.1 Release Notes

PowerCLI and SRM Compatability

Storage Module Updates

The VMware.VimAutomation.Storage module received a couple updates to fix some issues. The Get-VsanDisk cmdlet has been updated to now also list the vSAN disk where the Witness Component resides. An update has additionally been made to the Start-SpbmReplicationTestFailover cmdlet so that it no longer requires the VvolId parameter.

Summary

PowerCLI 11.1.0 has been released and completes the 6th release of the year! This new release includes support for Site Recovery Manager 8.1, as well as converting the SRM module over for multi-platform support. Two storage cmdlets have been updated to fix some reported issues. Lastly, some dependencies for the DeployAutomation and ImageBuilder modules have been updated.
