[Linux-cluster] problems with fence_vmware_soap and vCenter server 4 / ESX 4

hi all,

I am having troubles while using fence_vmware_soap to get the VM list
and any other operation.

fence_vmware_soap -l user  -p pass -a -o list -z

My user has full admin privileges. is the vCenter IP
address running on Windows 2008. vCenter is controlling only 1 ESX 4

Doing the same thing against the ESX shows the same issue:

fence_vmware_soap -l root -p pass -a -o list -z
Failed: Unable to obtain correct plug status or plug is not available

Looks like it is connecting and authenticating properly because if I
use a fake password it fails with "Unable to connect/login to fencing

Please advice
