HostCreateSpec

The Host.CreateSpec structure defines the information used to create a host.


Properties

string
folder Required

Host and cluster folder in which the new standalone host should be created. This field is currently required. In the future, if this field is unset, the system will attempt to choose a suitable folder for the host; if a folder cannot be chosen, the host creation operation will fail. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the field must be an identifier for the resource type: Folder. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the field will be an identifier for the resource type: Folder.


string
user_name Required

The administrator account on the host.


string
hostname Required

The IP address or DNS resolvable name of the host.


string as password
password Required

The password for the administrator account on the host.


thumbprint_verification Required

Type of host’s SSL certificate verification to be done.

Possible values are: NONETHUMBPRINT


integer as int64
port Optional

The port of the host. If unset, port 443 will be used.


string
thumbprint Optional

The thumbprint of the SSL certificate, which the host is expected to have. The thumbprint is always computed using the SHA1 hash and is the string representation of that hash in the format: xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx where, ‘x’ represents a hexadecimal digit. This field is optional and it is only relevant when the value of Host.CreateSpec.thumbprint-verification is THUMBPRINT.


boolean
force_add Optional

Whether host should be added to the vCenter Server even if it is being managed by another vCenter Server. The original vCenterServer loses connection to the host. If unset, forceAdd is default to false.
