    Unable to convert object, no sdk type defined for class

      So, this USED to work to return all of the snapshots of all the VM's in a folder (and subfolder):


      if (subfolders == true)
          var virtualMachines = System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vc.folder").getAllVirtualMachinesByFolderIncludingSubFolders(vmFolder);
          var virtualMachines = System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vc.folder").getAllVirtualMachinesByFolder(vmFolder);
      var snapshot = new VcVirtualMachineSnapshotInfo();
      var allSnaps = new Array();
      for (var i in virtualMachines)
          var snapshot = virtualMachines[i].snapshot;
          if (snapshot != null)
                  var rootSnaps = snapshot.rootSnapshotList;
                  for (var ii in rootSnaps)


      return allSnaps;


      function GetChildSnapList(snap)
          var childSnapshotList = snap.childSnapshotList;
          for (var ss in childSnapshotList)



      Since the update to 5.1, I get the following error when it returns allSnaps to an array of type VC:VirtualMachineSnapshot


      ch.dunes.model.type.ConvertorException: Unable to convert object, no sdk type defined for class : com.vmware.vim.vi4.VirtualMachineSnapshotTree@2f68fe27


      Has something changed, and I need to modify the way I am doing this, or is it another bug?
