So I have a lab that I manage where we have had several scheduled power outages in the last few months. So it is my job to make sure that we power off the lab so none of our equipment have issues when we bring it back up.
I would estimate that our lab is comprised of about 90% VMware ESXi Hosts, and after going through the exercise of powering off the whole lab 1 or 2 times, it became it bit of a pain.
So I created a PowerShell Script using PowerCLI to not only power off all the Virtual Machine, but also the Virtual Hosts, and the VCSA appliance itself.
I have posted the script to my Github which you an check out here:
Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.
I hope you found this post helpful, and if so, please share it with your friends.
