You're going to have to be much more specific as to what your requirements are here. There are multiple ways to do this, but they all begin with vSphere (vCenter + ESXi).
I have 2 esxi servers V 6.7 and want to try to bring up servers in a super easy way. And powercli would potentially do it for me.
I will try to find Vcenter appliance.
When you install the vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) you will be able to connect to it with PowerCLI and having access to all systems linked to that vCenter instance; so the datacenter as an object, a cluster, each host and each datastore as well as all other related objects such as the VMs, switches, folders etc.
Trying out PowerCLI should have a reason, otherwise I don't understand what you're trying to achieve.
thx, got it running now and have created new vm´s by new-vm.
My goal is to bring up servers on the fly for dev. Is there another way other than powerCLI?
yes there is.
Either the described way with a Template VM and a Customization Specification or you simply clone an existing VM. This is not the same as deploying it from a template but it's similar. And this can be done as an easy right-click operation from within the vSphere Web Client.
I hope I could help!
I only ran
New-VM -Name w_2019_deploy -VM w_2019_bas -Datastore datastore2 -vmhost 10.10.253.10 -DiskStorageFormat thin
instead of cloning in the gui, later i will check if i can invoke commands and scripts remote, to provisioning the server.
Btw have anyone tried the Vagrant plugin?
