VMware Labs finally release PowerCLI VDS cmdlet package!

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:

Add-PSSnapin VMware.VimAutomation.VdsComponent

And list the cmdlets like this:

Get-Command –Module VMware.VimAutomation.VdsComponent

You can download them from here:
