vSphere AutoDeploy PowerCLI cmdlets

I was reviewing the guide for Auto Deploy and on page 16 found this table which will be a good handy resource to memorize the PowerCLI commands to use with rule sets.



Returns a list of Auto Deploy cmdlets.

Creates a new rule with the specified items and patterns.

Updates an existing rule with the specified items and patterns.You cannot update a rule that is part of a rule set.

Retrieves the rules with the specified names.

Clones and updates an existing rule.

Adds one or more rules to the working rule set and, by default, also to the active  rule set. Use the NoActivate parameter to add a rule only to the working rule set.

Removes one or more rules from the working rule set and from the active ruleset. Run this command with the - Delete parameter to completely delete the rule.

Explicitly sets the list of rules in the working rule set.

Retrieves the current working rule set or the current active rule set.

Activates a rule set so that any new requests are evaluated through the rule set.

Retrieves rules matching a pattern. For example, you can retrieve all rules that apply to a host or hosts. Use this cmdlet primarily for debugging.


Checks whether the items associated with a specified host are in compliance with the active rule set.
Given the output of Test-DeployRulesetCompliance, this cmdlet updates the image profile, host profile, and location for each host in the vCenter Server inventory. The cmdlet might apply image profiles, apply host profiles, or move hosts to prespecified folders or clusters on the  vCenter Server system.

Associates the specified image profile with the specified host.

Retrieves the image profile in use by a specified host. This cmdlet differs from the Get-EsxImageProfile cmdlet in the Image Builder PowerCLI.

Use this cmdlet only if the Auto Deploy image cache is accidentally deleted.

Retrieves the attributes for a host that are used when the Auto Deploy server evaluates the rules.

If you want to find out the PDF its located under other resources on the main documentation page.

Enjoy reading for your VCAP.
