Highlighting PowerVCF

Share on:

Hi readers,

This will be a short post. However, I want to take my time now and highlight a new creation from Gary Blake, Giuliano Bertello and Brandon Willmott called PowerVCF.

PowerVCF is, as from their GitHub page: “PowerVCF is a PowerShell Module for interacting with the VMware Cloud Foundation (SDDC Manager) public API.”

It has been tested with PowerShell 5.x and PowerShell Core 6.x
To install the module, open PowerShell as an Administrator and run:
Install-Module -Name PowerVCF
Or, alternatively, you can install the module download from the zip file in th GitHub repo:
Import-Module .\PowerVCF

To get started, you need to authenticate with the SDDC Manager. To do this, run:
Connect-VCFManager -fqdn sddc-manager.lab.local -username admin -password VMware1!

Note that not all cmdlets work with VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail. Please see the GitHub page for what is not supported.

Currently I do not have a lab envirounment that I can further test this with, so this post ends here. However, please give them a thank you for creating it and try it out for yourself, I think that it can be very useful for automation, for example.

Note that this cmdlet is NOT supported by VMware.

Thank you for reading this post and I hope to see you in the next one.
