Thanks Ryan

The powercli script works fine. But the only prerequisites are , VMs should be in power off status .

the link you provided is having the GuestID for windows 2008 R2 , not for windows 2012 , 2016 . Is there any guestid available for windows 2012, 2016 ?

Could you please share the full script to implement for multiple VMs if possible.

thanks

I apologize, but that was a very OLD link. Use this one for ESXi 6.5.
