Getting Started with VMWare’s PowerShell Toolkit White Paper

Mike Laverick has written a nice whitepaper about the beta of VMWare’s PowerShell Toolkit. This mini-whitepaper walks you through the setup and configuration of PowerShell for VMware – and how to get up an running with Dmitry Sotnikov’s PowerGUI and PowerPack for VMware.


It’s a really good step-by-step white paper with lot’s of screenshots so even a VMWare dummy can start using PowerShell using this.

You can download the white paper here.

More information about using PowerShell for VMWare can be found on this VMWare Blog : http://blogs.vmware.com/vipowershell/

    Thanks for the Document.
    I’m looking for a simple way to revert Vsphere VMs into specific snapshots.

    Can you suggest a cmdlet command or perl CLI command for it ?
