i am confused as to why it is asking for thumbprint of the windows host i am running powercli from??  when i first setup scaleIO on vmware workstation on totally different environment i never had this issue. I am completely stumped here why it is even asking this and what i would supply it from a windows host. my .212 IP is my windows host where i'm running this powercli script.

This is an old version, could you try using 1.32.4 / 2.0?
