Using the SCVMM Library to store PowerShell scripts

Yesterday I was filling in a questionnaire and one of the questions was “where do I keep my scripts”.  SCVMM Library was not on the list of answers but that is one location I keep them.

Storing files such as ISO’s and scripts used for VMM and its guests in the library is good practice.

From the screenshot below you can see there are useful actions that can quickly allow you to view, run and disable the scripts (the greyed out script has been disabled).

Placing PowerShell scripts in the library is just a matter of coping them into the relevant library folder.  You can create folders for tidiness.  If you have lots of scripts, the VMM library has a search feature,  no doubt in years to come I will need that Smile.

For more information on best practice using the SCVMM library you can review the TechNet article here.
