I started to figure out how to prompt the user for information, setting variables, and ultimately running the commands to build a linked clone pool only allowing the parameters I specified so that I could retain control of the type of pool, delete policy, etc.
The below is what I finished. Take it easy on me…it’s a first attempt. I regret that there is not much error checking. The only requirements are that vSphereCLI is installed on your View server that you wish you run this on.
