I am currently using Powergui, but I've noticed the VMware powerpacks stop at 4.1. I assume this means any of the new cmdlets will not show up with highlighting? Is there an editor that has the syntax highlighting for the newer cmdlets?
you can use Powershell ISE and load powercli on the posh inside... just run the startup script on the screen or make an alias like
. "C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphere PowerCLI\Scripts\Initialize-PowerCLIEnvironment.ps1"
it loads all the current cmdlets into the autocomplete and syntax highlighter
Nevermind, I'm a bonehead lol. I forgot they have snap in's that I need to load although in powergui they don't seem to be higlighting the latest cmdlets still. I'm also checking out Luc's favorite powershell plus
Here is an online one I just created: GitHub - DoubleCloudInc/powercli-sketchpad: Sketchpad for VMware PowerCLI It's open sourced under MIT license. To use it:
