A script to put multiple vms on snapshot vmware Print

  • 54

Two things to do before you run this script.
1- Change the vcenter server name
2- Create a file "C:\temp\serversfile.txt" and put your vms in it.

#Get PowerCLI stuffs
Add-PSSnapin VMware.VimAutomation.Core
#Ignore that we don't have a proper certificate for vCenter
Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -Scope Session -InvalidCertificateAction Ignore -Confirm:$false

Connect-VIServer #### vcenter server name #####
