PowerCLI Core enables a multi-platform scripting language which will allow you to manage your VMware infrastructure on any OS. Scripts written previously against the windows version are now made portable to a number of operating systems and can simply be loaded and run on these new OS versions without change.
PowerCLI Core can be downloaded from the VMware Flings site here and used with he below instructions to be deployed.
