how to upgrade vm version

In today's article, I'll be showing how to upgrade the VM hardware version using PowerCLI for either one VM or multiple VMs at a time to version 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, or any version. Additionally, I'll show you how to target a specific group of VMs by name or based on their location in a given cluster using a one-line command.

download and install vmware powercli module

VMware regularly releases updates to its Powershell module, known as PowerCLI. While in the past you had to go to the vmware.com website, download the executable - by the way, you still can for older versions - and install PowerCLI, you no longer have to since there's an easier way directly from a PowerShell console.

Configure SNMP for ESXi

VMware documentation is excellent, but not if you're a beginner with PowerCLI. While you will find documentation on how to configure SNMP for your ESXi hosts, the way it's presented is not very clear and will leave you scratching your head in confusion since you'll be thinking how does this configure SNMP on all my ESXi hosts?
