Coverting PowerCLI to Orchestrator

What is the best method for converting your old PowerCLI script to javascript so that it can be exectuted in vCO?  Is there a tool to do this automatically or do you need to go line by line into your PowerCLi script and covert every cmdlet and property over to javascript?

You can use Onyx for that: http://labs.vmware.com/labs/onyx

It also let you run PowerCLI scripts against Onyx, easy way to get a starting point for translating the scripts.

Also make sure to give the Powershell Plugin for vCO a try, that allows you to call the existing scripts from vCO workflows. Gives you a smooth transition path to vCO 🙂
