How to start multiple VMs when needed

Hi erveryone,

I'm having hard time finding/figuring out how to start multiple VMs "with just a click (script)" when needed.

Is it possible to do it with ESXi 4?

Do I need another VMware product to do it?

Can I use WinTask (http://www.wintask.com/) ?

Thanks for your help

Sebastien

also, check out the vSphere™ PowerCLI Forum, it has some great stuff

In vSphere there is also the vApp option.

But you cannot use it with a single ESXi, cause you must have vCenter Server.

Probably the simple way is use RCLI or PowerShell scripting.
