Re: [libvirt-users] start and stop a VMware VM using libvirt API

Yes, that seems to be correct.

>> The libvirt VMware ESX driver can manage VMware ESX/ESXi 3.5/4.x and VMware GSX 2.0, also called VMware Server 2.0, and possibly later versions. Since 0.8.3 the driver can also connect to a VMware vCenter 2.5/4.x (VPX).

Thank you Abbas,
I already tried it but I got a message saying it found version 5.0 instead

I used the command in libvirt-0.8.8 the windows version.

  You could write a bash or batch script to do that.
Normal connect format is "virsh -c esx://yournode"

"virsh start [domain]" is what starts a VM. Refer to the man pages for
virsh command set.

If so, is there any sample about it?
