A must for any VI Admin,
This review is from: Managing VMware Infrastructure with Windows PowerShell TFM (Paperback)
So you have used VMWare Virtual Infrastructure 3 or vSphere, you know how powerful it is and how great the features are within the VI client but what happens when you want to get more details or you want to automate some features... You wait for the next version and hope they have included them in there - WRONG !
If you haven't bothered learning PowerShell yet (why not) and you haven't looked at PowerCLI / VI Toolkit then please do yourself a favour and buy this book.
Not only does it give you an amazing insight into the way things work below the GUI it also teaches you the basics of PowerShell and how to use this technology to manage the VMware feature set we have come to know and love.
Hal's unique writing style will take you through learning how to perform many extensive tasks which would normally take hours, sometimes days through the client and show you how to perform these actions within minutes or sometimes seconds. He even adds a little of his own sense of humour to lighten some of the more mundane tasks - which is actually very funny for an American.
In this book you will learn how to deploy multiple virtual machines in minutes, report on the extensive areas of virtual infrastructure and much much more.
Believe me, this is one book I would recommend for any VI Admin to read and store next to your management workstation.
If you are a VI admin reading this then stop doing things the long way and buy the book !
