This library is built for and tested against ESXi and vCenter 6.5, 6.7 and 7.0.
It may work with versions 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0, but neither are officially supported.
The APIs exposed by this library very closely follow the API described in the VMware vSphere API Reference Documentation. Refer to this document to become familiar with the upstream API.
