cloneVMTask threw RuntimeException: The operation is not supported on the object

Hi,

I am using the web sdk against esxi 5.1 (enterprise+ license) to clone a vm.

I am not using vCenter, this is only the esxi hypervisor.

The codes are based on the sample codes come with the sdk, but I am getting "The operation is not supported on the object".

Does it mean that the vm cloning is not available on the esxi ? Does this require vCenter ? Or something wrong on the codes ?

Your help/comments would be greatly appreciated.

CloneVM_Task is vCenter only.  There is a good of which methods are supported on each platform, but I always loose the link and it's not easy to fing.
