Using Nutanix Powershell commandlets download?

Hello,

 

I am new to Nutanix and installed the Community Edition from ce-2016.10.12-stable.img and upgraded Powershell to 4.0 on my Windows 7 x64 laptop.

I just downloaded the Powershell cmdlets Installer from my Prism page and installed successfully (NutanixCmdlets icon on the desktop). 

 

I launch the NutanixCmdlets icon on the desktop and trying to connect to my (single) cluster using connect-NTNXCluster command using IP and credentials, but fails with error (attached).  I've also tried from Powershell prompt after importing module.  Any suggestions?

For community Edition, we're about to release a massive update based on AOS 5.0, which has PowerShell changes in-built, so best not to soak up time right now with the 2016.10.12 release + PowerShell if you can put a pin in this for another few days. Working on getting release candidate 5 out the door this week.

Thank you!

Just trying to get it functional in general to begin executing commands and mainly to demonstrate to customers when asked.

Looknig around for the 'new build'.

Looks like nothing has changed...

 

Sorry, Jon...

 

Still an MSI to install and a Posh Snapin.

 

Help is almost non-existant.

 

Is Nutanix serious about PowerShell?

Honestly, this has been a sore spot, and I'm personally not happy with it. We're actually in the middle of recoding this entire thing, as it's not up to where we want it to be. Happy to talk about that project in more detail if you'd like, hit me up jon@nutanix.com and I can give you the internal details
