NSX Bytes: Controller Deployment Gone Bad?

With NSX becoming more and more widely available there are more NSX home labs being stood up and with that the chances of the NSX Controllers failing due to “Home Lab” nested issues become more prevalent. The NSX Controllers are Ubuntu Linux VMs and like any Linux VM are fairly sensitive to storage latency and other issues that appear in #NestedESXi or lab environments.

My first script that I ever wrote was a script to build VMs. I was the newest member on the team, and i was giving the task of building 50 VMs for a new project that was getting started. It was a very daunting task, due to the completion date to have these 50 VMs to be completed. So one of the other members of the team told me about PowerCLI, but didn’t have any knowledge about it.
