vCO - new plug-in released: VIX

VMware released a new vCenter Orchestrator plug-in this week: the vCO VIX plug-in. With this integration it is possible to start operations direct in the virtual machine, like file copy, starting a service or check for directories.



The plugin can be downloaded at VMware Labs: http://labs.vmware.com/flings/vix-vco
Within the .zip file are several components:

o11nplugin-vix.dar - The vCO VIX plug-in (binary)
vCO41-VIX-Plugin-Guide.pdf - The documentation guide
VMware-vix-x64-1.10.1-266898.zip - The Windows 64-bit VIX DLL
VSOSDK-vix-src.zip - The vCO VIX plug-in (project and source code)

The .dar file can be installed like every other plug-in in the configuration interface of the vCenter Orchestrator.
