VMware New Release: PowerCLI 6.5 R1
There’s been a lot of buzz around PowerCLI lately, and we’re keeping it going! It gives me great pleasure to announce the general availability of VMware PowerCLI 6.5 Release 1!
Before diving in on all the new features, it’s worth noting that these features are all created based on feedback taken directly from the users. Please help us make the product better by letting us know what would make PowerCLI easier to use and what would make your automation tasks less painful! The PowerCLI Product Manager, Development Team and I, would like to extend a huge Thank You to the community for their great feedback and consistent drive to enhance the product.
The Core vSphere module has received a number of updates as well as stability and performance improvements. The most notable updates include cmdlets based around VM creation and management. The ‘Move-VM’ cmdlet now supports the ability to vMotion VMs between vCenters which is known as Cross vCenter vMotion. Performing a Cross vCenter vMotion with PowerCLI also allows the VM to traverse between separate SSO domains too! This is something not available with the GUI. The ‘New-VM cmdlet now supports configuring a VM to have a specific number of CPU cores. Then, the ‘Open-VMConsoleWindow’ has been updated to provide access to the latest and greatest version of the VMware Remote Console (VMRC). Lastly, various cmdlets have received updated views to allow access to the new vSphere 6.5 APIs!
