Data Object - HostServiceTicket
- Returned by
Return value for ticketable host services. The server has the option to
provide a hostname and port for a future ticket-authenticated connection to
a service on a host. If the service provider does not return a host the
client must connect to the same host it used to request the ticket. In case
the service provider does not return a port, except in the case of connecting
to CIM interfaces, the client must connect using the same port it used to
request the ticket. In the case of connecting to a CIM interface the
standard well known port number for the particular service will be used for
For example, when a client requests a ticket from an ESX Server, the returned ticket
may omit the optional host and port. In such a case, the client establishes an
out-of-band ticketed connection to the same server host and on the same port on
which it made the connection to request the ticket. If this request is
made to the VirtualCenter server, but the server does not provide the required
service directly, then the server provides a hostname and port for a server that
accepts the ticketed connection and provides the service.
The name of the host providing the service for which the ticket applies. If
omitted, then the client uses the host name for the server that issued the ticket.
Access to some services is made possible by connecting to a port on a
server. If the service for which a ticket is issued is available on a
particular port, that port number is specified with this property. If
omitted, except in the case of connecting to CIM interfaces, the port
number for the service that issued the ticket is used. In the case of
connecting to a CIM interface the standard well known port for the
particular service will be used for the connection.
The name of the service to which to connect.
A dot-separated string identifying the service protocol version. For example: 1.0
is used for NFC hosted by vpxa and used for managed ESX 2.5 or 1.1 is used for
NFC hosted by hostd on ESX 3.0.
An identifying string for the session created for the ticketed connection. This
is used by the host service to identify the operations permitted within the
The expected thumbprint of the SSL cert of the host to which
we are connecting.
