New version of ghettoVCB out!

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

So my favourite script has a new version out! William Lam’s ghettoVCB script is now called ghettoVCBg2 and it’s bigger and better than ever!

He has come out with a new script that works with version vSphere version 4 without the need for the SSH console. He’s also added a lot of new features such as logging support and VM snapshot memory and quiesce options!

I am currently using this script testing it in my test lab environment and will write a detailed setup for you guys on how to setup the script in your new ESXi 4.0 enviornment. Now with VMware’s move to using VIMA for management everyone should start getting used to doing things this way as the rumor is that VMware will move away from having a normal console and move towards using the VIMA model for management in the future.  Stay tuned for more information on how to setup the new version of this script.

In the meantime if you can’t wait and want to give it a whirl on your own, you can grab it from the VMware communities here and give it a try!
