Pirate Pack for VMware vCloud Director - v1.0


Brought to you by the Pirate -


I would like to say a very special 'thank you' to Matt Robinson for his help initially creating the data source


This latest installment of the Pirate Pack is all about VMware's vCloud Director 5.1.  We have included a new data source built around VMware's vCloud Director 5.1 along with new filters, finders and commands.  These workflows require that VMware's PowerCLI Toolkit be installed on the WFA server.  I tested with 5.1 R1 and 5.1 R2 with no issues (Note the readme has a workaround for a 5.1.0 R2 known issue).  Also, the WFA server must have the credentials for the vCenter Server and the vCenter Datasource needs to be configured (Check the Appendix of the IAG for this information).  More information about the Commands, Filters, Finders and Data Source is available in the README file found in the package.





New Workflows:


Add a vApp from Catalog to existing vApp

Clone a new vCloud vApp based on a Catalog Item

Clone a new vCloud vApp based on existing vApp

Move Entire vApp to a new Storage Profile

Move vApp Virtual Machine to a new Storage Profile

Power Management - vApp





WFA Version: B11275
