PowerShell Script to Populate a vWorkspace Farm

Here’s a script I wrote to help setup a vWorkspace farm. I’m constantly rolling out new farms and having a script like this will probably save me a week of my live this year. I don’t have to click through the same wizards to create the same apps and assign them to the same users. […]

Remotely Administering vWorkspace with Mobile-IT

Along time ago we released a PowerGUI PowerPack that enabled PowerShell based administration of vWorkspace via the handy PowerGUI interface.

vWorkspace PowerShell Prompt

PowerCLI has a very cool little shortcut setup when you install the product. I thought it would be cool to mimic something like that using the vWorkspace PowerShell module.
