vmCLIpboard aids VMware power users and administrators in building, managing and automating the execution of VMware CLI (Command Line Interface) commands with an easy to use GUI (Graphical User Interface) that runs natively on Windows, OS X and Linux.

  • Build complex VMware CLI commands with a point and click user interface
  • Easily boot, reboot or shutdown a few, or a few thousand, virtual machines
  • Mass copy a document, application or any file to your virtual machines
  • Execute an application on any number of virtual machines
  • Take snapshots of all your virtual machines with ease
  • Check your virtual machines for an application or service/daemon that should be running
  • Collect screenshots of all your virtual machines
  • Simultaneously launch a utility virtual machine and/or application across all your servers
  • Defragment and shrink all your virtual disks
  • Check and attempt to repair virtual disks that have been corrupted
  • Effortlessly expand your virtual disks that are getting full

vmCLIpboard supports the VMware VIX API and VMware Virtual Disk Development Kit. Support for the VMware Open Virtualization Format Tool and VMware vSphere Command-Line Interface is in development.

Whether you are testing software on different operating systems, juggling many virtual machines or managing a network of VMware servers (vCenter, ESXi, ESX, Server, etc.), vmCLIpboard will increase automation of those tasks and make your job easier.

When used freely, vmCLIpboard builds and executes commands for one virtual machine at a time but does not save those built commands or any application settings. It is intended for hobbyists or anyone that wants to give it a try before buying a license.

When licensed, vmCLIpboard builds commands for any number of virtual machines, executes those commands simultaneously across any number of servers using parallel processing, restores previously built commands and application settings upon startup, and has other professional and enterprise level features not available when used freely.

$99 (may be run on all computers owned by the buyer; includes one year of updates)

VMware Workstation or VMware Fusion is needed for local virtual machines and may also be used for remote virtual machines. If working only with remote virtual machines, just the VMware VIX API and VMware Virtual Disk Development Kit are needed, both of which are free.

vmCLIpboard normally uses less than 32 MB of RAM and from one to a few percent of a modern CPU when building commands and executing individual commands. Executing commands simultaneously across multiple servers using parallel processing increases CPU and RAM utilization relative to the number of servers. When targeting many servers, a newer laptop or desktop with one or more hyper-threading multi-core CPUs is highly recommended.
