What you need for this book

This book depends upon you, the reader, to have a vSphere environment to connect to and run the scripts against. This can be achieved through a try and buy download from VMware.com or with a company Test environment. A vSphere environment typically includes:

  • A VMware vCenter server utilizing a Windows-based standalone installation or a vCenter Server Appliance
  • An attached VMware ESXi server

This book was written using PowerShell v3 on Windows Server 2008 R2 VM or on PowerShell v4 running on Windows Server 2012 R2 VM. The scripts were tested on multiple systems for compatibility and to reduce errata in the scripts. PowerCLI version 6.0 R1 and R2 were used.
