INF8038R - Getting Started with PowerShell and PowerCLI for Your VMware Environment

Session Description

VMware’s PowerCLI Module is one of the most complete, mature, and widely adopted extensions to the PowerShell framework. It includes a plethora of functions that abstract the vSphere API down to simple and powerful cmdlets for operating your vSphere environment. For those new to the concepts of scripting and automation, getting your feet wet into PowerCLI can be daunting. After all, no one wants to accidentally explode their data center with a few errant keystrokes! Join VMware’s Kyle Ruddy, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer, along with Rubrik’s Chris Wahl, Microsoft PowerShell MVP, as they arm you for success with PowerShell and PowerCLI. You’ll learn how modules, snapins, functions, and scripts relate to one another, how to install and configure your PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment, setup a profile, and begin writing PowerCLI scripts using safe, non-destructive starter code. We’ll also dive into exploring objects, extension data, and perform simple logic statements.
