Step 1 - Installing the module
Option A - automatic installation from PowerShell Gallery
Install-Module -Name VMware.VimAutomation.VmcPreview -RequiredVersion 126.96.36.19922238
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
