0.4.1 - 2012/03/26

  • Minor fixes

0.4 - 2012/03/25

  • Do not include test data inside the gem.

  • Define a Logger object "foobar"
  • Added some debugging with Log.debug
  • ESX::Host now has a templates_dir attribute and supports uploading and cloning templates:
    host = ESX::Host.connect 'my-esx-host', 

    host.import_template "/path/to/template.vmdk"

This will copy the "template.vmdk" file to the default templates_dir in ESX. Default templates dir is "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/esx-gem/templates".

The template is automatically converted to VMDK thin format.

Using the template:

    host.copy_from_template "template.vmdk", "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/foo.vmdk"

Sorter version:

    host.import_disk "/path/to/local/template.vmdk",      # local file 
                     "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/foo.vmdk", # remote path in ESX
                     { :use_template => true }

If the template "template.vmdk" is found, use that. Otherwise import the disk, save it as a template and clone the template to "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/foo.vmdk"

  • Added the following methods to ESX::Host

    • ESX::Host.has_template?
    • ESX::Host.list_templates
    • ESX::Host.delete_template
  • Better test coverage
