May 5th AZPOSH Meeting Follow Up
Last Wednesday was the second meeting of the Arizona PowerShell (AZPOSH) User Group at Interface Technical Training in downtown Phoenix. Like last month, we had about 20-25 people show up for the meeting. Free pizza was provided, swag from Quest software was given away to everyone, and we had a blast digging into some PowerShell code.
Harry Meier did a great presentation on “The Many Layers of VMware PowerCLI” where he started with the basics of managing VMware with PowerShell and moved into more advanced topics. He took use through several scripts, such as how to clone Virtual Machines and scan RedHat servers for missing patches with PowerCLI. You can download Harry’s slides and code here.
We spent the last part of the meeting with Mike Pfeiffer examining some real world code examples from various sources. Mike revised several code samples to utilize new PowerShell v2 cmdlets and techniques. He also talked a bit about utilizing .NET classes and how to search MSDN for help. You can download the scripts here.
For those that did not make it last week, we announced that we are now listed on PowerShellGroup.org, please sign up and join the group. Events will still be posted here as well, but we’ll be using some of the tools on the site, such as posting polls and meeting updates.
We have several things in the works for the next meeting; we’ll be posting more about it in the coming days so stay tuned!
