My objective is to use a command line to DELETE A VIRTUAL DISK and remove it from inventory completly. I want to automate this process.
I used this command:
vmkfstools -U vmfspath/file.vmdk
That just deletes the VMDK file. It does not remove from INVENTORY. I also don't think p2vtool has an option.
I was told to try VI PERL TOOLKIT.
So I installed the VI PERL TOOLKIT. I configured IIS to run PERL under (C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware VI Perl Toolkit\Perl\bin\perl.exe) on my Win 2003 Serv.
However, how do I execute a .pl file? Im not sure how to get this working in windows. When I browse to C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware VI Perl Toolkit\Perl\apps\vm in a command prompt and try this command:
It seems to say perl is not recognized. So what can I do to achieve my objective. Is the VI Toolkit what I need to make this work?
thanks in advance...
