Kurzbeschreibung

In Detail

"Learning PowerCLI" introduces you to VMware vSphere PowerCLI, from downloading and installing the software to creating good-looking reports of your VMware vSphere environment.

You will learn about working with host profiles, configuring virtual switches, removing snapshots, configuring Storage DRS, working with affinity rules, configuring an alarm, and managing roles and permissions. You will learn everything you need to know to get started with automating your VMware vSphere infrastructure. All the examples in Learning PowerCLI can be used directly in your environment.

Approach

"Learning PowerCLI" is written in a friendly and practical style with a focus on getting you started and automating daily tasks quickly and efficiently. If you manage or administrate a vSphere environment, and want to make that easier and more efficient, then this book is for you!

Who this book is for

5.0 von 5 Sternen erstklassige PowerCLI Referenz 15. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe mir dieses Buch in der Kindle Edition gekauft und lese es entweder in der S-Bahn auf dem Weg zur Arbeit, oder auch am Arbeitsplatz-Computer, wenn ich mal schnell einen Befehl nachschauen muss.
Der Inhalt ist methodisch gut aufbereitet. Beginnend von der Installation über die erste Einrichtung bis hin zu komplexen Abfragen wird an alles gedacht und man ist auf Grund des methodisch didaktischen Aufbaus der einzelnen Kapitel und dem Bezug zur Praxis anhand von nachvollziehbaren Beispielen, niemals mit dem Inhalt überfordert und möchte das gelernte gleich ausprobieren.
Ich benutze die vSphere Power CLI weniger als Deployment/Automation Tool, aber dafür mehr als Reporting-Tool, da mit mit den vielen CMD-lets eine Menge von Konfigurationsabfragen machen kann, welche sonst mühsam über den vSphere Client, oder anderen Third Party Tools extrahieren müsste um mal eben schnell einen Report an meinen Manager schicken zu können.
Die vSphere Power CLI gehört neben dem vSphere CLI, welches auf Perl beruht zu den wichtigsten Werkzeugen eines jeden VMware Admins. Beide Tools ergänzen sich und haben Ihre Daseinsberechtigung. The vSphere Power CLI entwickelt sich jedoch auf Grund der wachsenden Popularität der Windows PowerShell und der immer grösser werdenden PowerShell Community dessen aktive Mitglieder auch mit neuen Snippets und eigenen Scripts zur Verbesserung und Erweiterung des Anwendungsspektrums beitragen zum Remote Management Tools Nr. 1 eines jeden VMware Administrators.
Dieses Buch ist allemal die Investition Wert. Für Leute wie mich die eine zentrale Informationsquelle den verstreuten Informationen im Internet bevorzugen ist ein gut geschriebenes Buch wie dieses immer die erste Wahl.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction to the automation of VMware vSphere 1. April 2014
Von PowerCLI.de - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
VMware PowerCLI is a set of PowerShell cmdlets for the administration of VMware vSphere and vCloud products.
Three Weeks ago Packt Publishing released the book Learning PowerCLI. I read the book and here is my review.

The author
Robert van den Nieuwendijk is an IT professional from the Netherlands. Since 2011, he writes his own blog about Microsoft PowerShell, VMware vSphere and VMware PowerCLI. In 2012 and 2013 he was awarded with the vExpert title by VMware.

The audience
The book was written for VMware vSphere administrators with an interest in automating vSphere administration. Though you will get some basic knowledge about VMware vSphere while reading this book, vSphere administration fundamentals are recommended.

In my opinion, you should also bring some experience with Microsoft PowerShell and basic scripting or programming concepts.
You don’t need any experience with VMware PowerCLI. The book covers everything you need to get you started.

The requirements
To run any of the commands or scripts you find in this book, you will need the following software:
• Microsoft PowerShell 2.0 or higher (comes with Microsoft Windows)
• VMware PowerCLI (a free product from VMware)
• VMware vCenter server
• VMware ESXi

The last two products are available with a free 60-day evaluation license. Of course, a full license will also do. VMware ESXi free edition instead is limited to read-only access, which is not being able to modify any settings with PowerCLI.

The structure
The first chapter covers PowerCLI basics. You will learn how to install PowerCLI, connect to and disconnect from a host or vCenter server, and how to retrieve a list of your hosts or virtual machines.

The next two chapters cover PowerShell and PowerCLI basics, e. g.
• finding commands and getting command help
• PowerShell Providers and PSDrives
• creating, examine and using PowerShell objects
• working with PowerCLI objects
• using the PowerShell pipeline

These chapters will not only give you a basic understanding of VMware PowerCLI, but also improve your knowledge in fundamental PowerShell concepts.

The following six chapters are a detailed commandline reference for the administration of hosts, virtual machines, virtual networks, storage, clustering and VMware vCenter server. You will learn which cmdlets are available, what they do, and how to use them.
The final chapter is about VMware vSphere reporting and shows you how to retrieve various data from your environment and create exports and reports.

Conclusion
The book is very, very detailed. That’s a good thing especially for beginners and as a reference, but probably too much information to read one chapter after another.

“Learning PowerCLI” offers a great introduction to the automation of VMware vSphere. It’s not a book about how to automate your daily administration tasks. It is a book about PowerCLI concepts and cmdlets.
I suggest to study the chapters 1-3 thoroughly and to use the other chapters as a reference whenever Get-Command and Get-Help do not give you enough information.

If you already work with PowerShell and PowerCLI, it can help to increase your knowledge. I’ve been using both for years and got a lot of new information and ideas from this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excelent book 14. März 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The first chapter explains how to download and install PowerCLI then move on to issues like change policy tool execution and logging in to servers and how to avoid annoying but always useful warnings about certificates. Also makes a journey on the use of credentials, filtering objects and as inventories and get listings from servers to which we connect.

In chapter two usage is explained cmdlets , which are the proper instructions with which we can perform all tasks with PowerCLI. It looks like you can use arrays and hash tables, the use of properties and working with folders vSphere.

The third chapter explores the use of PowerShell and working with objects, while in chapter four and five, each complete expatiate on the management of hosts and virtual machines, explaining clearly as restarting services, create, modify and remove virtual machines, manage storage controllers, network and upgrade the environment. It also explains how you can create snapshots and run guest operating system commands on the virtual machines.

Chapter six is ​​entirely dedicated to network management in VMware environments, focusing on the standard virtual switches and distributed, as well as management VLANs and NIOC. Chapter seven focuses on his side's exclusive virtual storage management, dealing with datastores, policies pathing, and storage clusters as absolutely everything, can be controlled and managed from PowerCLI. The eighth chapter deals with clusters of tasks and HA. The ninth and penultimate is about showing how to use PowerCLI to manage vCenter Server and all tasks VMware administrator requires. And finally, the tenth chapter explains how to harness the power and versatility of PowerCLI to generate useful reports and metrics that serve to conduct a detailed environmental analysis.

In conclusion, is an excelent guide to inmerse into PowerCLI world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for beginners and intermediate level users of powershell and PowerCLI 5. März 2014
Von M. Poore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Unless you’re new to vSphere, you’ll probably have heard about PowerCLI. You may already be using it regularly or perhaps you’ve found the occasional use for it and used one or more of the many excellent scripts that can be found on the internet. Either way, unless you’re an advanced user (or even a guru) of PowerCLI, "Learning PowerCLI” is well worth a look in my opinion. The author has posted many times on his blog with useful scripts, one-liners and tips for using PowerCLI in the past. Several times an issue that I’ve had has lead me to his blog so I was very interested to see if his knowledge and experience had translated well into book form.

Although I did read through the book from cover to cover, it’s not really that sort of book. PowerCLI and Powershell are technologies that you can easily dip into when a specific need arises and I found that trying to absorb the entire contents of the book was hard-going. That shouldn’t be taken as any sort of slight against the author’s writing style, it’s just the subject matter doesn’t lend itself to being the kind of book that you can’t put down. It is, though, the kind of book that you want to pick up and learn from. I’ve been using Powershell and PowerCLI for many years and I was surprised at the number of things that I learned!

People with a very strong grasp of Powershell and PowerCLI already might find that there’s a limit to what they gain from the book but beginners and intermediates alike should find that there’s plenty to take away and use.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great reference for PowerCLI, alright introduction to PowerShell 27. Februar 2014
Von Matt Griffin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book can be used as a fantastic reference for when you are trying to automate a task utilizing PowerCLI. The book is designed for VMware Administrators and provides a very simplified introduction to PowerShell. If you are looking for something outside of the help documentation provided on the VMware site this can be very beneficial; however if you are wanting to automate anything outside of vSphere you need additional PowerShell books to fully understand the technology PowerCLI leverages.

4.0 von 5 Sternen No Powershell knowledge required, but helpful. 4. März 2014
Von C. Nakagaki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The great thing about Robert's approach is that he takes the time to point out some basic powershell syntax outside of PowerCLI. You are then soon driven into some very useful cmdlets to extract information from your vSphere environment using Powershell and vSphere's PowerCLI cmdlets. There were a couple of areas of concern where a lack of explanation on certain things lead to a hmmm? moment, but overall an excellent book for a vSphere admin looking to use PowerCLI. For me as a technical person, I like the 'straight to the point' approach. This book is filled w/ little text and more usable script examples for me to get my job done as an admin/engineer.

For full disclosure, I was given this book to review, but was not compensated beyond this. I also have met Robert before, but that in no way has an affect on my review of this book. The above review reflects my honest opinion. You can also find this book on [...]
