NAME
fence_vmware_soap - Fence agent for VMWare over SOAP API DESCRIPTION
fence_vmware_soap is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with the virtual machines managed by VMWare products that have SOAP API v4.1+. Name of virtual machine (-n / port) has to be used in inventory path format (e.g. /datacenter/vm/Discovered virtual machine/myMachine). In the cases when name of yours VM is unique you can use it instead. Alternatively you can always use UUID to access virtual machine. fence_vmware_soap accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_vmware_soap can be run by itself with command line options. This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts. Vendor URL: http://www.vmware.com PARAMETERS
