VMware PowerCLI 11.2 Released With VMware HCX

PowerCLI 11.2 released with few updates and I have updated in my PowerCLI modules from 11.1 to 11.2, I thought to bring up a blog post to show the updating steps and few new features. I hope you already aware that PowerCLI is now serving through the PowerShell Gallery so you do not need a separate installer to run PowerCLI on your computer. Just check out below post to see the steps of configuring the PowerCLI via PowerShell Gallery.

PowerCLI 11.2 has introduced a brand-new module to automate the VMware HCX (Hybrid Cloud Extension) with the introduction of VMware.VimAutomation.HCX along with new 20 cmdlets. You can find more information about VMware HCX in this amazing post.

PowerCLI 11.2 has below new updates:

  • VMware HCX new module introduction
  • NSX-T Policy Support
  • OAuth Based vCenter Connectivity
  • Opaque Network support
  • Storage Cmd module updates

How To Upgrade PowerCLI modules to 11.2

In my case I have already installed PowerCLI 11.1 in my computer. To upgrade the PowerCLI modules execute below commands

To view the current running version

Get-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI -ListAvailable

To update to the latest release

Update-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI

Hit “Y” to accept and to continue the upgrade

Check the status again with the installed modules with below command

Get-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI -ListAvailable

    We’re currently manually entering all the information for each server being migrated including some “extended” options (DNS; IP; etc).

    I was hoping to use PowerCLI to automate this process,
    how can i do that?
