Error "OpaqueNetworkMgr IPC disabled" when connecting a VM to an Opaque Network via the API

I have VSphere 6.7 with NSX-T managing some of the networks there. I'm trying to use the API to connect a new VM to an existing NSX-T network. The NSX-T networks all appear as Opaque Networks, as expected. So, I create a new "VirtualEthernetCardOpaqueNetworkBackingInfo", set the network type and ID, bundle it all up into a "VirtualMachineConfigSpec", and submit the request.

I get back the following error:

error = (vim.fault.PlatformConfigFault) {
    dynamicType = <unset>,
    dynamicProperty = (vmodl.DynamicProperty) [],
    msg = 'An error occurred during host configuration.',
    faultCause = <unset>,
    faultMessage = (vmodl.LocalizableMessage) [],
    text = 'OpaqueNetworkMgr IPC disabled'
}

I can't find any further information online about the "OpaqueNetworkMgr", or how I might enable IPC for it.

What does this error indicate? How can I fix it?
