Sorry "ENTPF"...VMware doesn't have anything like that, that I'm aware of. The only publications I'm aware of are below:
http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-12306
and
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1008166

Good Guide, but for older version of ESX/i ...not vSphere (4.x and above). Nevertheless, still a good resource.
