  • SC VMM 2012: PowerShell Cheat Sheet

    PowerShell iconOver two years ago I created a cheat sheet, or cube note, for SCVMM 2008 R2. That post is still available in this blog. With VMM 2012 all commands have changed. The document I created is now more than a single page as there are so many new commands. I’ve sorted them as best I could by function. A quick summary of PowerShell/VMM capabilities, then a link to the new document.

    Think about this… every single command you perform in the SCVMM Admin Console can be performed in PowerShell. There isn’t a single thing in the Admin Console that is not available by interactive command or script. In fact, there are many things that can be done only in PowerShell. Further, when scripts (.ps1 files) are saved to the Library they are available to run immediately by right clicking them and selecting ‘Run Script.’
