My ESXi 3.5 box throws the following fault when the vcl service tries to execute a poweroff command. I suspect this is because remote administration using the VI perl toolkit was disabled for update 4 of Esxi3.5. The solution seems to rebuild with a previous update. Has anyone found a workaround for this? Or maybe more specifically, has anyone had success using a free version of Esxi?
