Hi everyone-

I am looking into how to set a task or to script the reverting of a VM in ESX 3.5 from a snapshot.   in the Scheduled Tasks Menu there is not such cron job task.   How would one go about getting machines revert from a script or task.

vmware-cmd vmfs/volume/vmfslabel/VMName/VMName.vmx revertsnapshot
