PowerCLI for VMware Cloud on AWS
Release Date: October 22, 2018
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.

Step 1 - Installing the module
Option A - automatic installation from PowerShell Gallery
Install-Module -Name VMware.VimAutomation.VmcPreview -RequiredVersion 22.214.171.12422238
Option B - manual installation through download from flings.vmware.com
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:
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.
- Added Remove-* cmdlets

Have you ever wanted to give your users access to certain virtual infrastructure tasks instead of the entire vCenter Client?
WebCommander is a way to do this! WebCommander was designed as a framework to wrap your PowerShell and PowerCLI scripts into an easy-to-access web service.
Vmss2core is a tool to convert VMware checkpoint state files into formats that third party debugger tools understand. It can handle both suspend (.vmss) and snapshot (.vmsn) checkpoint state files (hereafter referred to as a 'vmss file') as well as both monolithic and non-monolithic (separate .vmem file) encapsulation of checkpoint state data.
ESXi Google Authenticator
Google Authenticator is a project that provides two-factor authentication by using both a PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module) module and a mobile application for generating one-time passcodes. In ESXi Google Authenticator, we modified the source code of Google-Authenticator to enable two-step authentication on ESXi (5.0, 5.1).
Desktop Watermark is a Windows native application that adds a watermark to a desktop for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) auditing or exhibition purposes. A watermark has the ability to be visible or invisible. Invisible watermarks, seen in the screenshot, can be revealed by a tool bundled in the Fling. The tool should be configured by an administrator and enforced on the end user's desktop.
