Documenting VMware vCenter with Microsoft PowerShell and Word Version 1.2

January 7, 2015

Blog, PowerShell, VMware

Jacob Rutski has updated his VMware vCenter documentation script to version 1.2. Jacob added Import\Export functionality to enable a system to run the script without needing MS Word and export to XML then import at a later time without access to the vCenter server.

Read Jacob’s article here.

    -Import [<SwitchParameter>]
        Runs this script gathering all required data from a previously run Export
        Export directory must be present in the same directory as the script itself
        Does not require PowerCLI or a VIServerName to run in Import mode

        Required?                    false
        Position?                    named
        Default value                False
        Accept pipeline input?       false
        Accept wildcard characters?  false

    -Export [<SwitchParameter>]
        Runs this script gathering all required data from PowerCLI as normal, then exporting data to XML files in the .\Export directory
        Once the export is completed, it can be copied offline to be run later with the -Import parameter
        This parameter overrides all other output formats

        Required?                    false
        Position?                    named
        Default value                False
        Accept pipeline input?       false
        Accept wildcard characters?  false
