    Notes:

     

    For 6.0 please update custom task:

     

     

    In the task script you will find the below statement.

    VMwareAddDiskAPIConstructor.populateVirtualDisk(diskSizeInKB, disk, diskfileBacking, controllerkey, unitNumber, cInfo);

    We need to modify it as below.

    VMwareAddDiskAPIConstructor.populateVirtualDisk(diskSizeInKB, disk, diskfileBacking, controllerkey, unitNumber, cInfo,null);

     

    Passing an extra null.
