VMware: esx-configure Powershell script


As part of a larger project I’ve been working on a set of scripts which configure a freshly-installed ESX (or ESXi) system into Virtual Center (after first attempting to remove previous VC state and clean state from the host). Currently they follow a typical post-boot configuration pattern:

  1. Set ESX password
  2. Add to Virtual Center cluster
  3. Configure Virtual Switches
  4. Configure Port Groups
  5. Add NFS partitions
  6. Add iSCSI partitions
  7. Configure NTP
  8. Configure VMotion

Before trying, modify esx-master.ps1 and esx-profile.ps1 to local conditions (or your password will be set to “CHANGEME”).
Command: esx-autoconfigure.ps1 “hostname|ip-address”
