In the AutoLab build we’re using a lot of PowerCLI, the whole DC and VC build is migrating into PowerShell and there are a few places where we use PowerCLI.
On big issue I have had with PowerCLI is the huge delay in loading the snap in, PowerShell itself loads in a few seconds but PowerCLI takes a couple of minutes to load.
A quick Google has brought relief in the form of a blog post from the every awesome Alan Renouf which helped me resolve the issue http://www.virtu-al.net/2010/07/05/speed-up-powercli/
If you aren’t familiar with Alan’s work spend a while looking around, I particularly recommend the vCheck script.
