PowerCLI - Recent servers file is corrupt

This is just short post because I have experiences PowerCLI warning "Recent servers file is corrupt" depicted below.

 PS C:\Users\Administrator> C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\scripts\Cluster_hosts_vCPU_pCPU_report.ps1  
 WARNING: Recent servers file is corrupt: C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\VMware\PowerCLI\RecentServerList.xml  
 UTC date time: 04/15/2016 12:32:52 Cluster: Cluster ESX name: esx01.home.uw.cz.Name pCPUs: 2 vCPUs: 19 vCPU/pCPU ratio: 9.5  
 UTC date time: 04/15/2016 12:32:52 Cluster: Cluster ESX name: esx02.home.uw.cz.Name pCPUs: 2 vCPUs: 12 vCPU/pCPU ratio: 6  

Google returns just one result here.

The solution to get out warning message is fairly simple.

Just remove corrupted file  C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\VMware\PowerCLI\RecentServerList.xml which will be created during the next PowerCLI run.

Hope this helps some other folks.
