PowerCLI 6.5.4 is dead, welcome PowerCLI 10.0.0 🙂 VMware released few days ago the latest version, marked with a huge jump in numbering, moving straight from 6 to 10. This version marks also the promote of the former Fling PowerCLI Core into the main PowerCLI product. Now we have same product running multiplatform: Windows, Linux, and MacOS. This makes things simpler. How do you install PowerCLI on Windows? That’s “Install-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI”. How about Linux? “That’s “Install-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI”. MacOS? You got this, it’s the same.
PowerCLI 10.0.0 consists of the following modules:
Not all these modules are supported on PowerShell Core, generating an error when trying to launch on Linux, but I will detail this in a future article.

The mentioned error: “Import-Module : VMware.VimAutomation.Srm module is not currently supported on the Core edition of PowerShell”.]
