I hate PowerCLI. There. I said it. I’m not a programmer. I can barely script. My upcoming VCAP exam pretty much requires some proficiency in PowerCLI. Perhaps you see my dilemma. Since I have to know it, I figured I’d better learn it. I decided to get started with something relatively simpe: Backing up my host configs. I’m going to show you how and I’m going to explain the commands.
