VMWare VSphere Virtual Machine Update CPU VERSION 1

This handler is designed to update a virtual machine on a VMWare VSphere server that matches the name supplied as a parameter. It logs in to the VSphere server using the server's administrative URL, user ID and password that are set as info_value records for the task. Once logged in, the virtual machine that will be updated is verified to make sure that the machine exists. Then a reconfigure command will be sent to vSphere to update the number of CPUs for the specified VM. Once the signal is sent, the handler waits long enough to catch immediate errors, returns the task id and then exits.

This handler uses the VMWare VI (vSphere) Java API (see http://vijava.sourceforge.net/ for more information). The api is deployed as a Java archive file (jar) and is stored in this handler's vendor directory. If the vijava jar file is stored somewhere else on the classpath, the jar file stored in this handler's vendor directory is not used. It is recommended that there are no vijava jar files stored anywhere on the classpath, and that all VMWare VSphere handlers contain the same vijava jar file in their vendor directory.
