This book on command line VMWare is the next in the series that I am working on. This one specifically deals with the command line interface available in VMware. You have several different ways of working with CLI or command line. You can use vCLI, vMA and Powershell to get a variety of information from your vCenter and vSphere systems. Command Line also gives you the ability to start, shutdown or restart hung VM's. The point of this book is to get you exposed to the possibilities of CLI and have it as a tool in your pocket to use when the GUI either isnt working or you cant find the information you are looking for.

I plan on adding to this document over time. If you have anything you would like to see added, please contact me via my website.

This book on command line VMWare is the 3rd in my series on VMware for New Admins. At some point in our careers, we will have to do our first upgrade of VMware and some or all of its components. My first upgrade had a few bumps in the road. It could have been worse. My goal with this book is to help you have an easier time during your upgrade process and start on the path to creating your own blueprint ro a successful upgrade.

Having a successful upgrade doesnt have to be difficult. As with anything that has several components, doing as much planning as you can up front and doing a test run in a lab situation can do a lot to avoiding problems later on.
