[ClusterLabs] fence_vmware_soap: reads VM status but fails to reboot/on/off

Hello,

Before I implement the cluster I'm testing the fence agents and I got stuck
at the rebooting the VMware based VMs.

I have installed VMware ESXi 6.5 Hypervisor with 5 VMs.

If I call :
    # fence_vmware_soap --ssl --ip esxi_ip --username root --password pass
--action list
I get the list with the names and UUIDs of the VMs.

If I call :
    # fence_vmware_soap --ssl --ip esxi_ip --username root --password pass
--action status --plug "564d5bce-3c55-2b02-1a8b-052c1fd24d6d"
I get the status of the VM.

But when I call any of the power actions (on, off, reboot) I get "Failed:
Timed out waiting to power OFF".

I've tried with all the combinations of --power-timeout and --power-wait
and same error without any change in the response time.

Any ideas from where or how to fix this issue ?

Thank you in advance.
