I manage VMware ESXi 4.0 server running mix of Windows virtual machines. I've installed VMware vSphere CLI in hope to pause/resume virtual machine and copy its image to NFS datastore. I've got CLI up and running, I can list datastores, registered machines, configuration and etc, but when i try to start machine with:
vmware-cmd --config /etc/vmware-vcli/esxi.conf /vmfs/volumes/_insane_uuid_/tester/tester.vmx start
it gives me this error:
Operation cannot be performed. SOAP Fault: ----------- Fault string: fault.RestrictedVersion.summary Fault detail: RestrictedVersionFault
From brief googling this looks like problem with unsufficient licence level. Current licence is:
ESXi 4 Single Server Licensed for 1 physical CPUs (1-6 cores per CPU)
And my question is: what licence should I purchase in order to make CLI work? There won't be any change in number of CPUs, memory size or number of physical servers whatsoever.
Thanks for answer in advance.
