Bingo. I was hoping that only file/datastore operations were locked down. I attempted to have a shared datastore mounted between the ESXi host and the management node so that the management node could manipulate the files. This worked great. I then tried to use VIX to register and power on the VM. I was greeted with the same "RestrictedVersionFault" that the vSphere SDK returns.

I committed some prerequisite changes this morning. I hope to commit the VMware code tomorrow.

So the next version of the Vmware code will use VIX as well?  And I am
guessing Vmware locked down write operations for VIX?

 How are you coming along with getting ESXi working with VCL?   Are
you able to enable SSH by temporarily switching back to an evaluation
license, then manage things via SSH?    See  "Managing ESXi without
the VI client"  at  for some
