Detailed Description

destory_vmware.pngThis handler is designed to destroy 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 name is verified and then a signal is sent for it to be deleted. Once the signal is sent, the handler does not wait for a response and immediately exits.

This handler uses the VMWare VI (vSphere) Java API (see 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.
