My journey to automate vCloud Director with PowerShell – part #2: Connect

connect

This was the simplest part of the journey. Just execute the Connect-CIServer commandlet (https://code.vmware.com/docs/11794/cmdlet-reference/doc/Connect-CIServer.html) and you’re finished.

The only thing you need to know whether you want to log in as Organization Administrator and make changes in the vCloud Director organization or if you want to log on as tenant and modify your own organization.

The -Org parameter of the commandlet is to be used for that. Just omit it to log on as Organization Administrator of the vCloud Director.

Example:

Connect-CIServer -Server <dns name or ip of your vCloud Director>

You will be presented a credential dialog for your username and password.
