Vcli : script to connect an ISO to a VM

Hi,

I made some tries under windows, but it don't work.

Here is the command I enter :

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vSphere CLI\Perl\apps\vm>vmreconfig.pl --us

ername xxxx --password xxxxx --filename vmreconfig.xml

Error in 'vmreconfig.xml':

Element 'Media-Type': This element is not expected.

But, I get media-type from : http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/beta/viperltoolkit/doc/utilityappsdoc/vmreconfig.html

I joined my xml file.

Please help

Thank you

ML

BTW, do I need to keep all the statements of this xml file ? Do a file like this will work (when Media-type issue will be solved

<Reconfigure-Virtual-Machine>

<Name>myvirtualcenter</Name>

<Host>myhost</Host>

<Connect-Device>

<CD-DVD-Drive>

<Name>CD/DVD Drive 1</Name>

<PowerOn>True</PowerOn>

<Media-Type>

<ISO-Image>

<Datastore>templates</Datastore>

<FileName>/Windows_2003_32_standard_with_sp2.iso</FileName>

</ISO-Image>

</Media-Type>

</CD-DVD-Drive>

</Connect-Device>

</Reconfigure-Virtual-Machine>

Hi

i have the same problem.

The problem is, that the element "Media-Type", "ISO-File" etc is missing in the xsd file.

Can anyone make some hints, how the xsd file should be extented for the support.

regards

Ronny
