    Set Default PSP Round Robin ESXi 5.0U1

      This used to work in vSphere4, but doesn't seem to be working now

       

      $esxCli = Get-EsxCli
      $esxCli.nmp.satp.setdefaultpsp(VMW_PSP_RR, VMW_SATP_DEFAULT_AA)

      Error:
      You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.

      Version:

       

      PowerCLI Version
      ----------------
         VMware vSphere PowerCLI 5.0.1 build 581491
      ---------------
      

       

      Has the PSP for Round Robin Changed?  According to my ESXi 5.0U1 Host, I can't even locate the PSP any longer.  Are we to use

      VMW_PSP_FIXED
