New knife-vsphere posted


#1

Ezra Pagel has just posted an updated version of the knife-vsphere gem.
It now supports non-distributed vswitch environments, works with chef
10.x.x, and adds a resource pool list function, along with a few other
smaller bug fixes.

Please let us know if you run into any issues with the latest release.

Just trying this out (didn’t use the previous version) and the first thing
I notice is that I am only getting partial vm lists from either of my data
centers.

try the -r option for recursive, as it lists items by folder.

That is a side effect of how vsphere does things and isn’t specific to
knife-vsphere.
if you look at the vsphere client and look at the 'VMs and Templates’
view, the layout should be the same
