cpu
Required

The LibraryItems.CpuInfo structure contains CPU related information about the virtual machine template.

memory
Required

The LibraryItems.MemoryInfo structure contains memory related information about the virtual machine template.

vm_home_storage
Required

The LibraryItems.VmHomeStorageInfo structure contains storage information about the virtual machine template's configuration and log files.

object
disks
Required

Storage information about the virtual machine template's virtual disks. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the key in the field map must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Disk. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the key in the field map will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Disk.

object
nics
Required

Information about the virtual machine template's virtual ethernet adapters. When clients pass a value of this structure as a parameter, the key in the field map must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Ethernet. When operations return a value of this structure as a result, the key in the field map will be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Ethernet.

string
vm_template
Required

Identifier of the latest virtual machine template contained in the library item. This field is the managed object identifier used to identify the virtual machine template in the vSphere Management (SOAP) API.

messages
Required

Stack of one or more localizable messages for human error consumers. The message at the top of the stack (first in the list) describes the error from the perspective of the operation the client invoked.

Each subsequent message in the stack describes the "cause" of the prior message.

object
data
Optional

Data to facilitate clients responding to the operation reporting a standard error to indicating that it was unable to complete successfully. Operations may provide data that clients can use when responding to errors. Since the data that clients need may be specific to the context of the operation reporting the error, different operations that report the same error may provide different data in the error. The documentation for each each operation will describe what, if any, data it provides for each error it reports.

The ArgumentLocations, FileLocations, and TransientIndication structures are intended as possible values for this field. DynamicID may also be useful as a value for this field (although that is not its primary purpose). Some services may provide their own specific structures for use as the value of this field when reporting errors from their operations.

Some operations will not set this field when reporting errors.

messages
Required

Stack of one or more localizable messages for human error consumers. The message at the top of the stack (first in the list) describes the error from the perspective of the operation the client invoked.

Each subsequent message in the stack describes the "cause" of the prior message.

object
data
Optional

Data to facilitate clients responding to the operation reporting a standard error to indicating that it was unable to complete successfully. Operations may provide data that clients can use when responding to errors. Since the data that clients need may be specific to the context of the operation reporting the error, different operations that report the same error may provide different data in the error. The documentation for each each operation will describe what, if any, data it provides for each error it reports.

The ArgumentLocations, FileLocations, and TransientIndication structures are intended as possible values for this field. DynamicID may also be useful as a value for this field (although that is not its primary purpose). Some services may provide their own specific structures for use as the value of this field when reporting errors from their operations.

Some operations will not set this field when reporting errors.

error_type
Optional

Enumeration of all standard errors. Used as discriminator in protocols that have no standard means for transporting the error type, e.g. REST.
ERROR : Discriminator for the Error type.
ALREADY_EXISTS : Discriminator for the AlreadyExists type.
ALREADY_IN_DESIRED_STATE : Discriminator for the AlreadyInDesiredState type.
CANCELED : Discriminator for the Canceled type.
CONCURRENT_CHANGE : Discriminator for the ConcurrentChange type.
FEATURE_IN_USE : Discriminator for the FeatureInUse type.
INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR : Discriminator for the InternalServerError type.
INVALID_ARGUMENT : Discriminator for the InvalidArgument type.
INVALID_ELEMENT_CONFIGURATION : Discriminator for the InvalidElementConfiguration type.
INVALID_ELEMENT_TYPE : Discriminator for the InvalidElementType type.
INVALID_REQUEST : Discriminator for the InvalidRequest type.
NOT_ALLOWED_IN_CURRENT_STATE : Discriminator for the NotAllowedInCurrentState type.
