Besides using vmrun for shell scripting, you can use the VIX API to do Perl or VB scripting, depending on your platform and preferences. There is documentation for it at http://pubs.vmware.com/vix-api/ReferenceGuide/.

"vmrun" is a faster and much easier script to use for automated operations than the "vmware" script, which insists on using a GUI.
