You can run the View PowerCLI cmdlets directly on a View Connection Server host.


Verify that the View Connection Server host has the following software installed.

  • View 4.5 or later
  • Microsoft .NET framework
  • Windows PowerShell 1.0


  1. Log in to the View Connection Server instance as a user in a role that has sufficient privileges to modify configuration data.
    For example, the Administrators role can modify configuration data. A read-only role cannot update configuration data.
  2. Select Start > All Programs > VMware > View PowerCLI.

What to do next

If you receive an error message that states the script configuration file cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled, type the PowerShell Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted command and restart the PowerShell console.
