Hacking Photon OS to Do Your Bidding

Tim Carr of comments:

Today I’d like to talk (er type) about how to make Photon OS a more easy to use extension of your operating system. I envision photon as a very lightweight way of getting PowerCLI functionality out of your Mac/Linux host with VMware Fusion/Workstation or this as a way to include a small management VM in your local vSphere environment. To bring this vision to reality, we need to set a static ip’s/nameservers, enable root login, setup some SSH keys and install PowerCLI with the built in package manager.

Timmy is doing great work making Photon usable for a variety of things with some basic hacking. Thanks for the hard work!
