At last!!! VMware Labs have released a package to add VDS functions into PowerCLI!
It is a Fling though that was only released yesterday, so it’s not going to have any official support from VMware, and currently only supports Windows XP, 2003 and 2008 (no mention of 2008 R2 here). You also need to be running PowerCLI 4.1.1 or later.
You can import the snap-ins like this:
And list the cmdlets like this:
Get-Command –Module VMware.VimAutomation.VdsComponent
You can download them from here:
And you can get some more information from Virtu-Al.net here:
