Are you like me and always end up with hundreds of Windows open then struggle to find the important ones to manage your infrastructure. This gets particularly difficult with the increasing amount of web management applications for your virtual infrastructure.
In comes Alan Renouf with another handy powershell script to create local vSphere plugins. This means you can access all you web management applications from inside the vSphere client.
You simply run the script which starts a handy form for you to fill in to create your plugin. Once you click create plugin the plugin is created and registered for you, all that is left for you to do it restart you vSphere client.
I have already used this to create a number of plugin’s to centralise all my VI management. A few can be seen below. To grab the code head over to Alan’s site www.virtu-al.net (http://www.virtu-al.net/2009/12/08/local-plugin-creator/) also if you find it useful and it saves you time consider donating a small amount to Alan’s test environment so he can keep producing these wonderful scripts. http://www.virtu-al.net/likemyscripts/
