    ESXi 3.5 u4 no more start and stop on CLI / Fault string: fault.RestrictedVersion.summary Fault detail: RestrictedVersionFault Operation cannot be performed

      Since the last update of ESXi 3.5 to Update 4 our scripts to shutdown and start the single VMs doesn't work anymore.

       

       

      (We reverted to ESXi 3.5 U3 and our batch works fine, as it worked for months before on u2 and u3).

       

      Is it really true, that the two commands

      vmware-cmd.pl <conn_params> PathToVmwareGuest.vmx -stop

       

       

      or

       

       

      vmware-cmd.pl <conn_params> PathToVmwareGuest.vmx -start

       

       

      doesn't work anymore? All that we get as response is:

       

       

      SOAP Fault: Fault string: fault.RestrictedVersion.summary Fault detail: RestrictedVersionFault Operation cannot be performed.

       

       

      SOAP Fault: Fault string: fault.RestrictedVersion.summary Fault detail: RestrictedVersionFault

       

       

       

       

       

      And if it is really no more possible, why should we not move to the free MS Hyper V?
