Last week figured out how to script vSphere related stuff with Python.
This week it is time for something new… how can we “script” vSphere stuff using PowerShell and how can we script NSX related stuff in particular.

So this is a list of steps (if you are really getting started) that you need to take to get started!

Detailed steps for this exercise are found on my wiki because I believe this can be better documented in wiki format.

  1. Install Windows
  2. Install vSphere PowerShell
  3. Install the DEVELOPMENT VERSION of NSX PowerShell add-on (manually)
  4. Connect to vCenter Server (trough PowerShell)
  5. Connect to NSX Manager (trough PowerShell)
  6. View available NSX PowerShell commands
  7. Verify if connection is working correctly with some “Get Commands”
