  • 1.  Unable to unzip PowerCLI on linux due to backslashes

    Posted Jan 20, 2023 11:41 AM
    I am downloading and wanting to extract PowerCLI to use on Linux.
     
    It seems like the PowerCLI .zip file contains backslashes rather then forward slashes which causes unzip to error.
     
    # unzip VMware-PowerCLI-13.0.0-20829139.zip 
    warning: VMware-PowerCLI-13.0.0-20829139.zip appears to use backslashes as path separators
     
    the unzip then fails
     
    Apparently this is a previous bug in Microsoft.PowerShell.Archive https://github.com/PowerShell/Microsoft.PowerShell.Archive/pull/62 which should bre resolved
     
    Anyone have any workarounds using linux unzip or even better, can someone on the PowerCLI team amend the archive creation process to resolve trhis.

    You could try to use 7zip to fix the issue
