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



No, I just tried it but  it didn't connect. 
After it gets the username and password it shows the following error message:
error: internal error Expecting VI API major/minor version '2.5' or '4.x' but found '5.0'

The documentation is outdated. libvirt also supports ESXi 5.0.

What is the exact error you get?

You already said that it reports being connected to ESXi 5.0. Why do
you expect it to report 4.x?
