Building custom PowerCli scripts to manager vmware environment

Now that you learned the basics of PowerCli you might be realized the power of this tool and the thousands of changes you can make on your environment with it.

But, if you want to accomplish some specific task and have no idea how to start it. Would not be nice to have Virtual Center telling you the scripts/command required to perform that change?

Well, it’s possible with Onyx.

Onyx is a standalone application that serves as a proxy between the vSphere Client and the vCenter Server. It monitors the network communication between them and translates it into an executable PowerShell code. Later, this code could be modified and saved into a reusable function or script.
