PowerCLI has been moving at quite the rapid pace over the last 2 years. In 2018, VMware been releasing roughly every other month to make sure we get the latest features, performance improvements, and updates available as quickly as possible. Well, it’s been two months and we’re not going to break this trend. Today, VMware releasing PowerCLI 11.0.0!

PowerCLI 11.0.0 comes with the following updates:

  • Added a new Security module
  • Added new cmdlets for Host Profiles
  • Added a new cmdlet to interact with NSX-T in VMware Cloud on AWS
  • Support for vSphere 6.7 Update 1
  • Support for NSX-T 2.3
  • Support for Horizon View 7.6
  • Support for vCloud Director 9.5
  • Multiplatform support for the Cloud module
  • Updated the Get-ErrorReport cmdlet
  • Removed the PCloud module
  • Removed the HA module

There are also a handful of updates which are all due to community feedback! There has been an update to the output when using New-VM combined with the ‘Confirm’ parameter so that the output matches that of the created VM. An update to Get-View has been added to help resolve a Vim error being received when the ‘Property’ parameter was specified. Another fix was when Get-VM would result in an error of ‘Value cannot be null’. The last big issue, there has been an update to the way Get-NetworkAdapter outputs a NSX-T logical network backed portgroup.
