AUTOMATE VSHIELD APPLIANCE DEPLOYMENT

I have been working towards some automation and this is what I have got done for now.

The script also uses the latest PowerCli 5.8 Release 1 – the Get-ovfconfiguration is key to deploying your appliances and ensuring they come up ip’d.

The script comes with a config.xml where you input all the parameters and then execute the script. You can also extend this by programmatically generating the config.xml file and executing the script.
