  • Your Windows box with vSphere Client
  • vSphere SDK for Perl 4.1 or vSphere SDK for Perl 4.0 or VI Perl Toolkit 1.6  (vSphere SDK for Perl - Windows Installer 32 Bit - available 32 bit only so far, for linux version download SDK for linux OS)


In Windows at a command prompt, change to the /apps/general directory.
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware vSphere CLI\Perl\apps\general


In Linux go to


Run connect.pl as follows:
connect.pl --url --username vmgenie --password secret


The script returns an information message and the host time. Now you can run other scripts, or create new scripts.
