Two days back I posted PernixData and PowerCLI in which I used PowerCLI to show me which Hosts had PernixData installed. A lot of reactions came through twitter and facebook, but Andy Daniel (@vNephologist) replied directly on the blog telling me I could use the PernixData FVP PowerCLI plugin to accomplish the same thing.
The installation of the plugin is as easy as starting PowerCLI and importing the module:
Let’s check if the command did what we wanted it to do:
When this is done, we will need to connect to the PernixData Management Server. Use the following line:
Connect-PrnxServer host-ip -Username name -Password password
Let’s see what our PernixData FVP environment looks like at the moment using the following line:
As you can see there is not a whole lot of information shown here, but that’s mainly because of this being a small homelab with PernixData not installed on any host yet. I’ll be diving into installing and managing PernixData FVP with PowerCLI in later posts.
A great resource for this is the following post by Byron Schaller (@byronschaller):
For now a big thanks to Andy for pointing this out. See you later ;P
