This Fling provides a community preview of the upcoming PowerCLI commands for managing VMware Cloud on AWS. It comes in the form of a single PowerCLI module and integrates with existing PowerCLI modules.

All commands have been automatically generated. They are still in development, contain known issues, and will change in the future.

  • Requires PowerCLI 11.0.0 (specifically, the VMware.VimAutomation.Vmc module) and Microsoft Windows.
  • Instructions

    Step 1 - Installing the module
        Option A - automatic installation from PowerShell Gallery
            Install-Module -Name VMware.VimAutomation.VmcPreview -RequiredVersion

        Option B - manual installation through download from
            Unzip the contents of the archive directly into one of PowerShell's module directories.
               - The PowerShell module directories are listed in the PSModulePath environment variable ($env:PSModulePath).
               - Do not create a subdirectory for the archive's contents. Unzip directly into the module directory. If the module directory you selected is e.g. 'C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules', the resulting path would look like:
               C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\VMware.VimAutomation.VmcPreview\EULA.rtf
               ...and not:
               C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\SomeExtraSubdirectoryYouCreatedForTheArchive\VMware.VimAutomation.VmcPreview\EULA.rtf

    Step 2 - Running the module
        Import-Module -Name VMware.VimAutomation.VmcPreview
        At this point, you can call Connect-VmcServer to connect to VMware Cloud on AWS.
        At this step, if you see an error message about missing required modules, make sure you have PowerCLI already installed and available in one directories listed under $PSModulePath.
