I have used it only in testing. It did not work perfectly with all of the options. I imagine it was designed to work in specific situations. I used it around February for those tests and Ezra Pagel, the maintainer, was very helpful. We are planning to start incorporating it into our operations within the coming months.

Subject: [chef] Re: Anyone using the knife-vsphere knife plugin ?
I’ve had “knife vsphere template list” working with a local user. Apart from that test I haven’t really used it yet, but that was my plan at least (don’t have the time to work in that currently)…
So I would also be interested in other peoples experience with it.
BTW: did you create the vm templates manually? I’ve been setting up some Vagrant baseboxes using VeeWee and and wanted to use the same mechanism for creating vsphere vm templates, but somehow I couldn’t get it to work that way…

Anyone using the knife-vsphere knife plugin? I am trying to use it without success. We have a large Virtual environment with 3000+ VM’s with many Virtual Center Servers, Data Centers and clusters. Some are geographically dispersed.
We are using Active Directoy integration with ESXi and Virtual Center. The documentation refers to named user authentication, so a domain user in the format domain\username should work?
I always get the following whe running a "knife vsphere template list"
ERROR: RbVmomi::Fault: InvalidLogin: Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.
I suppose the next step is to create local accounts on a Virtual Center server and re-test???
