VMware Labs announces VIX Plugin for vCenter Orchestrator
Looks like the engineers at VMware are not slowing down with the cool toys they keep releasing via VMware Labs. These are usually side projects for them that are very helpful to the community. This one I can see a lot of possibilities for. The ability to copy files to and from a VM guest could save time. Also being able to run scripts and affected processes from outside the VM.
- Check for a file or a directory in guest
- Copy file from guest to vCO and from vCO to guest
- Create, delete a file or a directory in guest
- List directory content
- List, stop processes in guest
- Run a program or script in guest
You can download it from the following link – http://labs.vmware.com/flings/vix-vco .
