PowerCLI on MAC or Linux? Cool!!!

      No Comments on PowerCLI on MAC or Linux? Cool!!!

The last couple years Microsoft is shifting to open source and with that our beloved powershell has become Opensource too.
This allows us to run PowerCLI on both MAC and Linux. The only pre-requisite for that is Powershell Core! To install it you can use BREW

brew cask install powershell

BREW can be downloaded and installed from HERE

Installing PowerCLI then could not be easier:

Install-Module  -Name VMware.PowerCLI -Scope CurrentUser

To confirm everything is as expected you can list all newly installed modules:

Get-Module VMware.* -ListAvailable

If you don’t use trusted certs you might want to disable the cert check

Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -InvalidCertificateAction Ignore
