Hi all -

Is there an existing cookbook for creating new virtual machines via chef?

Sorry - I thought I covered the mailing lists/documentation/github pretty
well :-/

Not aware of any, but I have a small ESX (rbvmomi) API ruby wrapper
that might be useful for that cookbook:

Cheers.

Check this out. Haven’t used it yet (no vmware server), but it looks promising

for what it’s worth, Jeff from puppetlabs has been working very hard to
get vsphere support into fog. - https://github.com/geemus/fog/pull/505

Here’s a quick gist that I made to test it - https://gist.github.com/1216529

hope this helps,
