    Vcloud Director Tools Install - Interactive

    Gaprofitt17 Novice



      Using the following code to install tools, however this only mounts the installer, and doesn't do an automatic tools install.  I'd rather not touch every guest.  Any thoughts? See the code snipping highlighted in bold.  Note I have no access directly to vCenter, just VCD..


      $vcdLogin = Connect-CIServer -Server $vcdSrv -Org $org -ErrorAction Stop


      $vmlist = Get-Org -Name $Org | Get-OrgVdc -Name $VdcName | Get-CIVM | Format-table -autosize

      Write-Host ""

      Write-Host ""

      Write-Host "Taking snapshots for each of those VM's" -ForegroundColor Cyan



      $vm=Get-CIVM "W2K8R2_SP1_ENT_64"


      # $vm.ExtensionData | Get-Member *tools* -ErrorAction stop

      # $vm.ExtensionData | Get-Member *snapshot*

      # $vm.ExtensionData | Get-Member *hardware*

      $vm.extensiondata.CreateSnapshot($false,$true,$vm,"$vm snapshot")

      # $vm.ExtensionData.GetSnapshotSection().snapshot

      Start-CIVM $vm -Confirm:$false


      Stop-CIVM $vm -Confirm:$false


      Start-CIVM $vm -Confirm:$false

      Write-Host "Upgrades completed for $vm" -ForegroundColor Cyan
