PowerCLI to upgrade guests tools, hardware and record to CSV

10 March 2010

All credit to the people over at ICT-Freak.  I have modified a few bits that hopefully some people will find useful.

  • Added in a section at the end to reboot all guests in the specified folder after the VM hardware upgrade.  This should mean that you will not need to log into each guest and then restart after the plug and play hardware has been detected.
  • Added another ‘Function’ called ‘CreateAfterListReboot’ to check for IP changes after the reboot (after the HW upgrade)

My modifed version: http://poshcode.org/1686
