New PowerShell module for interacting with Remote Console / CLI

Hey all-

 

I was recently doing some vNIOS deployment automation work that required interacting with the Infoblox Remote Console / CLI via PowerShell and I decided to break out the common stuff into an open source module that's now available on GitHub and PowerShell Gallery called Posh-IBCLI.

 

https://github.com/rmbolger/Posh-IBCLI

https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/Posh-IBCLI

 

Admittedly, the use cases for this module are pretty slim and most of the stuff you'd want to automate is better done through the WAPI. But there are a few things you can't do via WAPI like promoting a master candidate and joining a new appliance to an existing grid that this module makes easier.

 

I've only really had a chance to test it agains NIOS 7.3.x and a tiny bit on 7.0.x. So if anyone runs into issues trying to use it on earlier versions, feel free to submit an issue/comment on GitHub.

I was unable to install the modules by either method listed. Is it still available?

What errors did you get?  I just tested the Powershell Gallery route using Install-Module and it worked.  The Github repo is also still available.
