VMware vSphere PowerCLI is a command-line interface (CLI) tool
for automating vSphere and vCloud management. VMware vSphere PowerCLI debuted as the VMware
Infrastructure Toolkit, also called the VI Toolkit.
PowerCLI commands are executed in Windows PowerShell by
using PowerShell cmdlets. PowerCLI
cmdlets are available for VMware
High Availability and Distributed Resource Scheduler
setup, infrastructure activity reporting, VM ownership alerts and other tasks.
PowerCLI 5.1 requires Windows PowerShell 2.0 and a supported version of .NET Framework. This latest
tool version includes the vCloud Director PowerCLI snapin.
