I have an automated task to start, it involves various commands in PowerCLI. like
Allocate Space New-Datastore Parameter(1) Browse Datastore Get-Datastore Parameter(1) Remove file Remove-Item Parameter(1) Cancel task Stop-Task -Task Parameter(1) Create virtual machine New-VM -Name %Parameter(1) -Host Parameter(2) Delete virtual machine Remove-VM %Parameter -DeletePermanently Reconfigure virtual machine Set-VM -VM %Parameter(1) -Name Parameter(2) Assign network Set-VMGuestNetworkInterface -VMGuestNetworkInterface % Parameter (1) -HostUser Admin -HostPassword Pass01 -GuestUser User -GuestPassword Pass02 -Netmask 255.255.255.255 -Gateway 10.23.112.58 and so on........... ...........
but the above commands are relevant to configuring VMware in windows environment.
I did a lot of searching in Google but could not find a no-GUI (or command line or scripting) way of performing these actions and I don't think it can be done just using shell commands.
Is there any standard way of doing these things in Unix environments using command line or scripting? Or can I install PowerCLI in Linux and execute the same set of commands?
Do I have to download any tool or there is already some standard tool/command-line that comes with VMWare to do these type of actions in a Unix environment like for VirtualBox?
