ESXi - create snapshot with RCLI

rrsarge207 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a few ESXi 3.5 hosts that have a some VMs I would like to snapshot via a script.  I see that vmware-cmd is not a part of ESXi, so I downloaded the RCLI for Windows app (I'm willing to use the RCLI virtual appliance too if that's what's recommended).

Is there a way to script creating snapshots (and deleting later) via RCLI?  I'm not finding an obvious answer out there.
