The link above points to an awesome post by Mike Laverick about automating the installation of vCenter Server and its various accompaniments. I’ve been considering doing so myself for a great amount of time, but prior to coming to my current employer, installing a fresh copy of vCenter Server was a sufficiently rare event to not be worth the effort in automating. Well…working at a cloud provider means that you stand up new environments on a regular basis. So long story short…this might just be what the doctor ordered. Although I’d be doing the whole kit and caboodle via PowerShell myself 😉
