Managing AutoStart from CLI

Hello all,

We've run into a situation where we'd like to manage autostart from the CLI.

While we've found information regarding diving into XML files for the ESX versions <4.1 (VMware KB: Determining whether virtual machines are configured to autostart ), I haven't found any information regarding this or other type of management for anything version 5+.

Are there any CLI commands that can help enable, disable, add clients, and prioritize clients?  Or, is the XML vmAutoStart.xml the only way to do this from a CLI interface?

Thanks for the help.
