Invoke-VMScript fail after hot adding nic device(vSphere 5.0)

Hi,

after hot adding nic device, while i am trying to use the invoke script, getting permission errors.

before hot adding nic device, everything working well.

it looks like vmware toolbox bug.

I can always reproduce this error.

I tested it on win 2008 R2 64bit, win 2003 32bit, win 2003 64bit, RHEL5.4

and i tested invoke-Script for just get direcotry info, echo a file(touch a file), run process.

before hot adding nic device, it always working well.

bug after hot adding nic device, throws permission errors.

+ Invoke-VMScript <<<<  -VM $vm -ScriptText "dir" -GuestUser administrator -Gue
stPassword justpassword
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Invoke-VMScript], ViError
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Client20_VmGuestServiceImpl_RunScriptInGuest_ViE
   rror,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.InvokeVmScript

and I using vSphere 5.0 sdk to build very simple test code. and result is same.

my environment is like this:

VMware Tools: Version 8.6.5, Build 652272
Vcenter Server: Version 5.0.0 Build 455964

ESXi: Version 5.0.0 Build 623860
Guest OS: Windows Server 2003 64bit, Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit, Windows Server 2003 32bit, RHEL 5.4 32bit

Is this a bug? and is this fixed at vSphere 5.1 or new VMware tool version?

Is here Any one have some idea?

Thanks.
