Hi

I don't know any scripts or code that can do this with PHP

Check this, and see if has any information that you can use.

http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/sdk_pubs.html

and

http://www.vmware.com/technical-resources/script-automation/api-portfolio.html

Try to install VMware vSphere PowerCLI and VMware vSphere SDK for Perl, and check standard scripts or commands, and see if you can use on the PHP code.

There was a php beta product/code vcloudsdkphp, but documentation and the tool, I cannot find anymore in the vmware.com.

I know that are some codes or scripts to use with VMware Lab Manager(using aPI). But I never use this, and I don't know much about it. Try search any information about this.

Hope this can help
