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?
